Position:
Assistant Coach


D'Andre "DeeDee" Hill joined the TCU staff in December of 2004 after spending the previous three seasons as the head track & field coach at Dayton University in Dayton, Ohio. Hill is responsible for the women's sprints and relays at TCU.

In just two seasons at TCU, Hill has already taken TCU's sprinters and relay teams to new heights. After taking the 4x400 relay team to the NCAA Outdoor Championships for the first time in school history in 2005, Hill trumped the performance in 2006, as the 4x400 team earned All-America honors at the NCAA Outdoor Championships by placing seventh. In addition to the 4x400 team earning All-America honors, Hill helped Virgil Hodge earn an All-America certificate in the 200 meters by placing seventh at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Just last season, Hill helped guide TCU to school records in five events. During the indoor season, TCU broke the record in the 60 meters, 200 meters and 4x400 relay. During the outdoor campaign, the Flyin' Frogs set marks in the 400 meters and 4x400 relay.

At the Mountain West Conference Championships, Hill helped TCU make an immediate impact in just its first season in the league by winning the 100, 200, 400, 4x100 relay and 4x400 relay at the outdoor championships. TCU also won the 200, 400 and 4x400 relay at the indoor championships.

While at Dayton, Hill was responsible for all aspects of the track & field program, including the supervision of a three-person staff, team travel, recruiting, budget management and academics. As the Flyers' head coach she mentored numerous All-Atlantic 10 performers, both on the track and in the classroom. Her team maintained a GPA of 3.0 or better in each of her three years at Dayton.

Hill was an outstanding collegiate runner at Louisiana State University. She was a 15-time All-American and a six-time NCAA champion while running the 60, 100 and 200 meters, as well as both sprint relays for LSU. She was the NCAA individual champion in the 55-meter dash in 1996, a two-time 100 meter dash champion in 1995 and 1996, and a national champion in the 4x100 meter relay for three consecutive years from 1994-1996. She also placed second in the 200 meters during both the indoor and outdoor seasons in 1996. Hill was also a member of three national team championships at LSU (1994, 1995 and 1996), and participated in the 1995 World Championships and in the 1996 Olympics, where she reached the semifinals in the 100 meter dash. Her personal best mark in the 100 meter dash was 10.92 seconds, while her 200 meter best time was 22.49.

Hill was honored as the 1996 Honda Award recipient, given to the NCAA Women's Track & Field Athlete of the Year.

Hill is a member of the U.S. Women's Track Coaches Association and the USA Track Coaches Association.
