Tom Hill, in his 15th year at Baylor, is a man who wears many hats. In his time at Baylor, he has worked as a graduate assistant, compliance director, assistant track coach and assistant athletic director.
In the last three years, Hill has moved from coaching to serving as the athletic department's director of facilities, including the Ferrell Center, Turner Riverfront Athletic Complex, Floyd Casey Stadium and the Hart-Patterson Track and Field Complex. He also fulfills administrative duties with the track and field program.
Prior to assuming his current position, Hill oversaw many of the capital improvement projects, day-to-day operations and football advanced set-up. He also was commissioned for football and basketball game day management, as well as the maintenance of Baylor's athletic facilities. In addition to these duties, Hill supervised the track and field capital improvement project, served as meet director for the inaugural and 1999 Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championships, and coordinated the 1998 fall preseason and postseason WNIT.
In addition to his administrative duties on the Baylor athletic staff, Hill was in charge of the middle distance crew. In 1990, the women's 3,200-meter relay team earned All-America honors indoors, the first-ever award for a Baylor women's relay team.
A native of St. Mary's, W.Va., Hill graduated from Cedarville College in Ohio with a B.A. degree in math. He was a four-year letterman in both track and cross country, running all distances from the 1,500 meters to the 10,000 meters while earning All-America and two athlete of the year awards.
After Cedarville, Hill worked at his alma mater as assistant cross country coach. He finished his master's degree in sports administration at Baylor in 1989.
