Carol City hires Aubrey Hill as coach

Former UM assistant coach Aubrey Hill, who lost his job at the University of Florida last August amid the NCAA’s investigation into the Hurricanes football program, has been hired as head coach at Miami Carol City High, school principal JaMarv Dunn said Wednesday night.

“He’s the best candidate for the job,” Dunn said. “He’s the perfect fit. It’s in the best interests of the school.”

Hill, a Carol City and University of Florida alumnus, was UM’s receivers coach from 2008 through 2010 and the Hurricanes’ recruiting coordinator in 2010 before leaving for UF, where he served as receivers coach and recruiting coordinator in 2011.

But Hill and UF parted ways days before the 2012 season — a result of Hill being linked to the Nevin Shapiro scandal.

Hill, 41, will be appear before the NCAA’s infractions committee in mid-June and is among several former UM assistants facing charges of unethical conduct. Several former Hurricanes, including Jacory Harris, Dyron Dye, Eric Moncur, Randy Phillips and Olivier Vernon, have written affidavits on his behalf. Dye disputed the NCAA’s allegation that Hill “arranged for Shapiro to pay for bowling, beverages and meals” at Lucky Strike in Miami Beach.

Hill, 41, was a receiver for the Gators from 1991 to 1994.

At Carol City, he replaces Harold Barnwell, who was promoted to athletic director.
