Mike Woodson is not the only person with NBA experience that will be a part of the new basketball regime heading to Bloomington this fall. On June 9, 2021, Indiana University announced Armond Hill as the Director of Basketball Administration for the Hoosiers.
Hill, who worked with Woodson in the NBA as a part of the Los Angeles Clipper staff from 2014-2018, and will be taking his first job in the college ranks since an eight-year run as head coach of Colombia College that ended after the 2003 season.
“Armond will be a great asset for our staff and players,” said head coach Mike Woodson. “He is 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”.
You may be asking yourself, who are these players that Hill has been able to coach in the NBA? Superstars like Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen (Boston Celtics), Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Kawhi Leonard, and Paul George (Los Angeles Clippers) are at the top of that list.
Hill would go on to win the 2007-2008 NBA Finals, defeating the late Kobe Bryant, as a member of the Boston Celtics coaching staff.
Hill will bring the ability to not only tell Indiana Men’s basketball student-athletes what it takes to make it to the next level but, more importantly, will be able to show them.
Hill’s resume speaks for itself, and it will only continue to grow as his time as the Director of Basketball Administration for Indiana University.
