Bryan Hill’s longtime dream has finally come true. Hill, who has been Wylie’s defensive coordinator for the past three years, has been hired as Midland Greenwood’s head football coach and athletic director.

Hill, 36, was officially hired by the Greenwood ISD school board on Wednesday night.

“Greenwood is one of the few jobs I would have left Wylie for,” Hill said. “I had one of the best jobs in the country working at Abilene Wylie and this opportunity came to me at Greenwood and it is very special. Starting my career as a head coach in a place like Greenwood is very special to me. I cannot thank Mr (Ariel) Elliott, the principal, and the school board enough.”

Wylie defense coordinator Bryan Hill returns to the sidelines after providing his defensive instructions during Friday's 2020 Region I-5A Division II bi-district playoff against Grapevine at Mustang-Panther Stadium.

Hill, a 2005 graduate of Llano High School, got his first job as a high school coach at Wylie. He was one of Clay Martin’s first associates after Martin replaced Hugh Sandifer as the football team’s head coach.

“I can’t say enough about him,” Hill said. “He gave me my first shot at high school football. Not only has he helped me with the X’s and O’s and taken on a defense that has been his for 25 years, but he’s really mentored me and taught me what it’s like to be a head coach and athletic director. The experience of the last three years with him has been invaluable.”
