A point guard during his playing days, Albion won the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship his junior year with a 22-5 record. Gill was a captain when the Britons achieved another 20-win season (20-7) his senior year.
After his initial two-year stint at Albion, Gill was a graduate assistant at Siena Heights University in Adrian, Mich. In addition to serving as the junior varsity head coach from 2006-08, he completed a master’s degree in educational leadership.
He returned to Albion the next season for the 2008-09 season before joining the Ohio Wesleyan staff from 2009-11. In 2011, Gill was named Head Coach at Earlham College at the young age of 28.
