Hill signs new contract at Kansas State


After the program’s most successful season, Kansas State head coach Brad Hill has received a new five-year contract through the 2018 season.


A two-time Coach of the Year in the Big 12, Hill is guaranteed $1.735 million over the next five years.


The Wildcats won a program-best 45 games in 2013 and claimed their first regular-season conference title in 80 years. Kansas State hosted an NCAA Regional for the first time, going 3-0 to win the regional crown. The Wildcats advanced to their first Super Regional, dropping two of three at No. 3 Oregon State to fall one win short of reaching the College World Series.


Entering his 11th season at Kansas State, Hill has an overall record of 338-243-3 (.581) and is 188-115-1 (.620) over the past five years. He has seen 57 players drafted since 2005, including 27 who were undrafted out of high school. Hill has also had 53 Academic All-Big 12 honorees, including seven Academic All-District and two Academic All-Americans.
