SMSU FOOTBALL: Hiller named offensive line coach at SMSU

MARSHALL – Southwest Minnesota State University head football coach Cory Sauter announced Tuesday the hiring of Bryan Hiller as offensive line coach for the Mustang program.

Hiller comes to SMSU after spending the previous six seasons as offensive line coach, which also included three as offensive coordinator, at Missouri Valley College.

“Bryan Hiller is a tremendous hire for Southwest Minnesota State University and our football program,” Sauter said. “He brings a quarter-century of coaching experience to the Mustangs and is very familiar with our conference and region. Coach Hiller has been mentored by some of the top offensive line coaches in the business and is looking forward to helping our players take a step forward. Coach Hiller is a natural fit for SMSU and we are very fortunate to have him in our community.”

During Hiller’s tenure at Missouri Valley, the Vikings appeared four times in the NAIA playoffs and were consistently ranked in the NAIA Top 25. He coached numerous all-conference honorees during his time as offensive coordinator, including a 2015 NAIA second team All-American offensive lineman.

Prior to Missouri Valley, Hiller spent five seasons (2007-11) as offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Culver-Stockton College, where he recruited 12 all-conference players and coached six all-conference lineman.

Hiller began his collegiate coaching career at the University of Minnesota in 1996 serving as a graduate assistant coach for two seasons. In 1998, he was hired at Winona State University as the offensive line coach and spent nine seasons (1998-2006) with the Warriors in various roles, including recruiting coordinator and assistant offensive coordinator. While at WSU, he was a member of six NSIC championship and four NCAA playoff teams and coached 20 all-conference lineman, including seven All-Americans while with WSU.

Hiller is a 1996 graduate of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. He also earned a master’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Minnesota in 1998.

Bryan and his wife, Jennifer, have one son, Brock.
