Hill was the head coach at Rutgers from 1984-2013, recording 941 career victories with the Scarlet Knights. He also guided the program to eight NCAA World Series appearances. Under his leadership, Rutgers won eight conference tournament titles (five A-10, three Big East) and 12 regular season conference championships (eight A-10, 4 Big East).
Before coaching at Rutgers, Hill spent seven seasons as the head baseball and football coach at Montclair State.
