Coach Bob Stoops announced the addition of Drew Hill to the Oklahoma Football support staff as director of player personnel.

Hill joins after serving two years on staff at Colorado State in the same role working with head coach Jim McElwain. He will direct all aspects of Oklahoma’s recruiting program in conjunction with Stoops, Cale Gundy (director of recruiting/running backs coach) and the rest of the OU coaching staff to research and attract the nation’s top talent to Oklahoma. Hill’s many duties will also include scholarship management, as well as the coordination of the recruiting calendar for members of the coaching staff.

Prior to his stint with Colorado State, Hill spent eight seasons at Fresno State as the program’s football operations coordinator. During his tenure with the Bulldogs, the squad earned six bowl berths. He joined Fresno State after three years serving at Southern Mississippi as assistant director of football operations as the Golden Eagles earned a pair of bowl bids.

Before entering the college football ranks, Hill served as a college scouting assistant with the Atlanta Falcons and was a member of the organization during its NFC Championship run that culminated with an appearance in Super Bowl XXXIII following the 1998 season. A graduate of Southern Mississippi with a bachelor's degree in sports administration and a minor in business administration, he and his wife Kristi have one daughter, Madison Elizabeth, and one son, A.J.
