Pasadena City College Athletics has announced the hiring of Cedric Hill as new men’s and women’s track and field head coach. Long-time coach Armand Crespo will continue to be a top assistant on Hill’s staff as the Lancers embark on a new season in 2014.

Hill replaces Larry Wade, who served admirably as PCC head coach the past three seasons but has decided to resign in order to raise his family at his home in Las Vegas. Wade was named State Coach of the Year for the 2013 season.

Hill brings a large resume to PCC, including nearly a decade in NCAA Division II track and field. From 1999-2003, he coached 11 conference champions and eight national indoor/outdoor champions at Cal State Los Angeles. Hill was the college’s assistant sprints and hurdles coach. From 2004-2008, Hill served as a top assistant at Cal State University-Dominguez Hills.

Working with some of the top athletes in U.S. track and field, Hill has tutored such individuals as women’s sprint champion Nicole Duncan, winner of the Division II Women’s Athlete of the Year Honda Award in 2002, and men’s 1996 Olympic gold medalist Derrick Adkins.

Hill has also worked at the prep level as a coach at both Arcadia and Muir High Schools. Hill will serve PCC student-athletes well as a certified USATF/IAAF sprints and hurdles coach.

At PCC, Hill inherits a women's program that produced two-time, CCCAA state sprints champion Omhunique Browne and a Lancers team that finished in ninth place at the state meet. The PCC men's team produced five South Coast Conference individual champions this past season.

As a former community college athlete, Hill ran hurdles on a Western State Conference champion team at Glendale College. Prior to that, he was a national prep star in the 300 hurdles with a time of 35.78 seconds.

Hill and Crespo will also serve as event managers at the 2014 Pasadena Games, an annual preps and community college event held at PCC's Robinson Stadium.
