Kenny Hill Career

Hill attended Carroll High School, in Southlake, Texas, where he played for the football team. As a senior, he was the Texas Gatorade Football Player of the Year after passing for 2,291 yards with 20 touchdowns with 102 carries for 905 yards and rushing for 22 touchdowns. Hill also led Southlake Carroll to a 5A State Championship in 2011 where he completed 243 of 286 passes for 3,014 yards and 25 touchdowns with 9 interceptions; rushed for 280 carries, gaining 1,400 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Hill was highly recruited out of high school; in addition to Texas A&M, he received offers from Baylor, Houston, Kansas State, Missouri, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, TCU, Texas Tech, and Utah.

College career

As a true freshman in 2013, Hill was a backup to starter Johnny Manziel. He appeared in four games, passing for 183 yards and a touchdown.

After Manziel was drafted, Hill was named the Aggies starting quarterback for the 2014 season on August 16, 2014. In his first start against #9 South Carolina, Hill broke Manziel's passing yards record with 511 yards and four touchdowns. With a 52–28 win, the #21 Texas A&M broke South Carolina's 18-game streak of home victories. During that same game, he broke Ryan Tannehill's record of most passing yards in first career start and Jerrod Johnson's record of most completions in a game, with the record now at 44 completions. It was also the second-most completions and fifth-most passing yards in a game in SEC history. On September 6, 2014, in his second game as a starter, Hill had another stellar performance against the FCS school, Lamar University, completing 17 of 26 passes for 283 yards and four touchdowns in a blowout 73–3 win. He continued playing well in his next two games against Rice and SMU, with respective completion percentages of 64.5 and 72.7.

However, when the Aggies reached mid-season and began playing tougher opponents, Hill's performance dropped notably. On September 27 he threw 41 passes against Arkansas , only 21 of which were completed, giving him a completion percentage of 51.2-- his worst as a college football starter as of August 2017. In the following three games against ranked Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Alabama, Hill averaged 301.3 yards per game for six touchdowns and six interceptions. He was sacked 11 times. He completed only one pass of 30 or more yards in these three games. Due to these struggles on the field, notably against better competition where the Aggies lost three straight games, Hill was replaced mid-season by true freshman Kyle Allen. On November 1, 2014, the team suspended Hill for two games due to a violation of team rules and athletic department policies.

On January 9, 2015, Texas A&M granted Hill a release from his football scholarship with two years of eligibility remaining. On May 22, 2015, Hill announced that he was transferring to Texas Christian University and planned to play for the TCU Horned Frogs football team. As a transfer, Hill was required to sit out the 2015 season.

Ahead of the 2016 Big 12 media days, and prior to TCU head coach Gary Patterson naming a starting quarterback for the 2016 season, Hill was selected by Big 12 media voters as the Big 12 Preseason Newcomer of the Year. On August 25, 2016, Hill was named the starting quarterback over redshirt sophomore Foster Sawyer.

Hill and the Horned Frogs finished the 2017 season 11–3 and ranked 9th in both the final AP and Coaches poll. He ended the season and his college career having beat the then 15th ranked Stanford Cardinal football team, 39–37, in the 2017 Valero Alamo Bowl.

Professional career

After being undrafted, Kenny signed a contract with the Oakland Raiders but was cut on June 24 and then on June 25, 2018, he signed with the Montreal Alouettes.

Coaching career

Hill was hired to be a student assistant at his alma mater TCU in 2018, before being promoted to a graduate assistant position in 2019. He was promoted to offensive analyst in 2020.

Hill was promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2021.
