HILLSBORO (May 31, 2012)--Hill College announced Thursday that Scott Hyland will fill the position of women's basketball coach.
Hyland replaces Aaron Kallhoff as coach.
School officials say Hyland has nine years of head coaching experience and extensive knowledge of recruiting in Texas.
"From 2007 to 2011, Hyland was the head coach for Division II Texas A&M-Kingsville where he went 44-64, including two winning seasons, and being named Lone Star Conference South Division Coach of the Year for the 2008-09 season. The 18 wins by the 2009-10 team were the most by the program since a 27-7 mark in 2000-01. It was only the fifth time the program had ever reached 18 total wins for a season," PR Coordinator Eddie Middlebrook said.
"I have had the opportunity to build programs elsewhere, and I believe this situation is as good as any one I have taken over before," Hyland said.
Before Kingsville, Hyland served as women's basketball coach at Paris Junior College in Paris, Texas.
