Patrick Hill

Assistant Defensive Line


Patrick Hill joined the Minnesota Vikings as assistant defensive line coach for his first season in the NFL in 2023, after spending the 2022 season as a defensive analyst at LSU. Hill brings over a decade of coaching experience to Head Coach Kevin O'Connell's staff.

During his first season in the professional ranks, Hill helped the Vikings defense improve from their 31st overall ranking in 2022 to 16th in 2023, including posting top-eight rankings in both rushing yards/play (fourth) and rushing yards/game (eighth). The defensive line contributed to the Vikings allowing just two rushing attempts of 20+ yards in 2023, the fewest among all teams in the league in 2023. DL Harrison Phillips, who started all 17 games in 2023, totaled 92 tackles and 3.0 sacks - both of which were single-season career bests - six quarterback hurries and a pair of passes defensed.
