Hill was reportedly the highest paid assistant coach in the country at Kansas State but has taken the job as newly-hired Mark Turgeon’s assistant. Turgeon was most recently at Texas A&M but spent seven years as the head coach at Wichita State.
Hill was instrumental in bringing in recruits Michael Beasley, Rodney McGruder and Wally Judge to Manhattan.
This is a big blow to the K-State basketball program and just another reason to wonder what is going on with Frank Martin’s team. It was also reported that Gary Williams assistants last year at Maryland made a total of $231,000. That could mean that Hill took a pretty big paycut to leave Manhattan.
