“Andy has been a tremendous asset for our players, our staff, and me personally,” USU head coach Danny Sprinkle said. “He is the consummate professional and attacks his daily job with the intention of making everyone better. When he joined my staff two years ago, I instantly saw a change in my staff dynamics and cohesiveness. He has made my other assistants better, and our players absolutely love him and trust him. His perspective and positive attitude rub off on everyone in our program. He will be a terrific head coach when he gets the opportunity.”
Hill started coaching in 2000, working under Warren Friedrichs at Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington. After one season at the JUCO level, Hill jumped to NAIA, taking a job at Lewis-Clark State College in 2001. In 2003, Hill moved to Eastern Washington as a graduate assistant and has coached at the D1 level for the past 20 seasons.
Hill, the son of a coach, spent seven seasons as a Montana Grizzlies assistant before coaching for a decade at the University of Utah. Hill spent the 2021-22 season at New Mexico before catching on with Sprinkle at Montana State last year.
