Former Columbia University head coach and NBA assistant coach Armond Hill has been named IU men’s basketball’s new Director of Basketball Administration, the team announced Wednesday.
Hill was the head coach at Columbia from 1995 through 2003 and spent 17 years as an assistant coach in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers from 2003 through 2020.
Hill coached alongside IU head coach Mike Woodson with the Clippers from 2014 through 2018 and won an NBA Championship with the Celtics in 2008.
In college, Hill was named the 1976 Ivy League Men’s Basketball Player of the Year at Princeton University and was selected 9th overall in the 1976 NBA Draft by the Hawks. He played professionally for four teams from 1976 through 1984, averaging 6.9 points per game in his career.
"Armond will be a great asset for our staff and players,” Woodson said in a release Wednesday. "He's an NBA Champion who has worked with great teams professionally and collegiately and helped some of the best players in the world as a coach at the highest level.”
