UCF Adds Corrie Hill to Coaching Staff

UCF head coach Renee Luers-Gillispie filled out her coaching staff last week with the addition of former Texas assistant Corrie Hill.

Hill, who parted from the Longhorns this offseason after eleven seasons in Austin, was part of two Women's College World Series-bound squads and eleven consecutive postseason appearances during her tenure.

In addition to her stint in burnt orange and white, Hill was head coach at Texas-San Antonio (UTSA) for eight years, a tenure that included a pair of conference championships.

Hill's coaching resume also includes a tenure as coach and assistant general manager for the Durham Dragons, then of the Women's Pro Fastpitch League (the NPF's predecessor), as well as UT-Arlington; Southeastern Louisiana; and Baylor.

She replaces Hillary Barrow on the Knights' staff, who accepted a position at FIU. The Knights posted a 38-22 record a season a go, including a 12-4 mark in conference play. The squad went 5-13 against Power Five opponents, including victories over Alabama and Utah, and were eliminated with a 2-2 record from the Gainesville regional in the NCAA tournament.
