College Coaching Moves: Penn men's assistant Gill promoted to head coach

Brian Gill, who spent the 2017 season as a men's assistant coach at the University of Pennsylvania, has been named the Quakes' new head coach.

Gill takes over for longtime coach Rudy Fuller, who was promoted to senior associate athletic director.

“I am thrilled to hand over the coaching reins to Brian,” Fuller said. “We have known each other for over a decade, but this past year has given me a first-hand look at his ability to comprehensively lead a program. I’ve always known that he was one of the top recruiters in the country, but what I’ve come to learn in the past year is that his mentoring and coaching are just as special."

Prior to his arrival, Gill spent seven seasons at Georgetown as an assistant. His tenure with the Hoyas was highlighted by five trips to the NCAA Tournament, including an appearance in the NCAA College Cup final in 2012 and appearances in the quarterfinals (2014) and round of 16 (2013, 2015).
