ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - UCF head softball coach Renee Luers-Gillispie has announced the hiring of Corrie Hill as an assistant coach for the Knights.

"Our coaching staff gains so much with the addition of Corrie," Gillispie said. "She adds tremendous experience after having helped lead Texas to two Women's College World Series and has worked with some extremely talented players. We are excited to welcome her to the UCF family."

Hill spent the past 11 seasons as the Assistant Softball Coach at Texas, helping the team to 11 consecutive post-season appearances and two Women's College World Series appearances. She coached over 50 All-Big 12 student-athletes, 14 NFCA All-Americans, and over 40 NFCA All-Region selections.

Prior to her stint at Texas, she served as the Head Softball Coach at the University of Texas at San Antonio for eight seasons. She coached the Roadrunners to a pair of conference championships, as well as four NFCA All-South Region performers, 10 First Team All-Conference choices and 22 All-Conference players.

Prior to her arrival at UTSA, Hill served as head coach and assistant general manager for the Durham Dragons of the Women's Pro Fastpitch League (WPFL). As coach, she led the Dragons to a third-place finish and touted the league's home run champion in Trish Reinhardt and the co-batting champion in Patty Raduenz. She also has the distinction of coaching in the first declared women's pro game when the Durham Dragons met the Virginia Roadsters.

Hill started her coaching career as an assistant at UT Arlington (1989-92) before serving as head coach at Southeastern Louisiana (1992-95). She compiled a 45-68-1 record while at SLU and produced eight all-conference players and three all-state performers. Hill also had a one-year stint as an assistant and pitching coach at Baylor during the 1995-96 season, when the school resurrected its program, before she headed to the pro league.

Hill played collegiate softball at Baylor and UT Arlington. She picked up team offensive player of the year honors while at Baylor before finishing her collegiate career at UTA after Baylor dropped its program. With the Mavericks, Hill helped lead UTA to the league crown and was named to the All-SLC first team and all-tournament team in 1989.

Coupled with the Southland Conference title she earned in 2004 as head coach at UTSA, Hill earned the distinction of being the only SLC coach to win a league crown as a player (UT Arlington in 1989) and coach.

Hill began her post-collegiate playing career in the ASA majors with the Lone Star Lady Lights in 1989. She then starred as a catcher and first baseman for the softball Coors Light Silver Bullets in 1990-92.

In addition to her coaching duties, Hill was a three-year member of the NCAA Midwest Regional committee (2001-03) and was a voter on the NFCA Coaches Top 25 (2002-03). Hill has also served on the Southland Conference Coaches Committee and was a member of the NFCA's Convention Committee and the Rules Committee of the WPFL. She is an accomplished speaker for National Sports Clinics, presenting on softball mechanics (1990-92, 2008-present).

A Fort Worth, Texas, native, Hill graduated from UTA in December 1991 with a degree in exercise and sport studies with a minor in speech.
