Hill resigns from St. Pius X

St. Pius X coach Stephen Hill has turned in his resignation today at the Houston-area power program.

Hill has led the Panthers to back-to-back TAPPS state semi-final runs, but will move on from the proud program, leaving behind the likes of national-recruits Grant Gunnell, McKade Mettauer, Chase Lane and Jalen Curry.

β€œSt. Pius has accepted my resignation,” Hill said. β€œI have several college coaching offers on the table and felt like it was time. My wife and I have talked about this a lot, and I have to do what is best for me and my family.”

Hill came over to St. Pius from Rice University where he was a quality control coach. He also led Kinkaid to an SPC title in 2010 and 2011. Hill was named the 2012 Touchdown Club of Houston Sportsmanship Award recipient and that same year was a finalist for the Touchdown Club of Houston Coach of the Year.
