Rotherham United are delighted to confirm that they have added experienced coach Jon Hill to the first team staff at Roundwood, with the 52-year-old being reunited with Matt Taylor after signing a deal until the summer of 2026 with the Millers following his departure from Exeter City.
The Wigan-born operator had been overseeing first team matters at St James Park after Taylor and his assistant Wayne Carlisle made the move to AESSEAL New York Stadium in early October, but will link back up with the pair in South Yorkshire as the club’s new First Team/Development Coach.
Hill’s impressive CV boasts experience at clubs including Wigan Athletic, Blackburn Rovers, Everton and both Manchester United and City, alongside time as an assistant manager to Rene Meulensteen upon the Dutchman’s appointment as Fulham boss in 2013.
The former Rochdale and Witton Albion player’s career in the game also includes roles at Board level for Sheffield Wednesday – where he was sporting director under Carlos Carvalhal – and the Jordanian FA – for whom he was technical director – whilst he can also call upon experience as a head coach for Norwegian outfits Tromso and TUIL FK.
There are a number of notable talents who have enjoyed Hill’s tutelage over the years with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard both benefitting from his coaching whilst at Old Trafford, whilst stars such as Dimitar Berbatov and Scott Parker worked closely with him at Fulham.
Millers fans will see Hill for the first time in the dugout at the Coventry Building Society Arena for tonight's Sky Bet Championship showdown with Coventry City, with the coach providing some welcome support to Taylor and Carlisle at the club's training base at Roundwood moving forwards.
Everyone at Rotherham United would like to welcome Jon to the club and once again thank our colleagues at Exeter City for their assistance in him completing his move to South Yorkshire.
