Former Boilermaker Johnny Hill Joins Idaho Basketball Coaching Staff

Purdue’s former grad-transfer is getting into the coaching game!

Maryland v Purdue

One of Matt Painter’s former players has been hired as an Assistant Coach by the University of Idaho’s Men’s Basketball program!

Hill came to Purdue as a graduate transfer during the 2015-16 season after spending time at Illinois State then the University of Texas Arlington. Although he wasn’t a giant contributor for the Boilermakers, he started 11 games that season and was a solid piece off of the bench scoring 5.1 points per game while averaging 2.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.

He has now switched his focus to coaching and finds himself getting a good gig with the Vandals. Hill previously coached at the University of Northwestern Ohio as an assistant coach and head coach of the junior varsity squad. After that, he became the Special Assistant to the Head Coach at Grand Canyon University for three seasons.

We wish all of the best to Coach Hill as he takes his next step in his coaching career, Boiler Up!
