FIU assistant coach Aubrey Hill has passed away at the age of 48.

Reports of his death surfaced on social media Sunday evening and his passing was confirmed by multiple sources close to the situation.

Head coach Butch Davis released a statement confirming Hill's death, with the cause being a battle with cancer that Hill kept private.

The Miami native spent the majority of his football career as a player and coach in the State of Florida. Hill spent four seasons at the University of Florida as a receiver, hauling in 87 receptions for 1,454 yards in five seasons as a Gator.

After his playing career, Hill spent two seasons as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, which were followed by stops at Duke, Elon and Pittsburgh, before returning to his hometown as receivers coach at Miami.

He was hired by Butch Davis at FIU after a successful stint as head coach of Miami Carol City High School from 2013-2016.

Hill was entering his fourth season as receivers coach at Florida International.
