OXFORD – Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy announced the addition of former Auburn and UTEP assistant coach Tony Madlock to the Rebels’ coaching staff Wednesday.

Madlock, who spent the last four seasons as a member of Tony Barbee’s staff at Auburn, brings more than 15 years of collegiate coaching experience to the Rebels. Prior to working with the Tigers, Madlock spent four seasons as an assistant at UTEP and nine seasons at Arkansas State.

“We are very excited to add Tony to our coaching staff,” Kennedy said. “His vast experience, starting as an outstanding player at Memphis, through his  17 years as an assistant at the Division-1 level, will allow him to bring a unique prospective to the players on our team. Tony carries an outstanding reputation as a tireless recruiter, who also does a great job as an on-court teacher. Everyone I talked to through this hiring process raved about his abilities.”

    Its none of my business what is going on up there at Ole Miss, but the addition of more coaches only deepens the existing problems. why not just fire the whole gang and start all over again. Rod Barnes was a winner up there – why not bring him back? Think him a big improvement over existing

    JB, it seems that as long as they’re a “yes man”, they’re allowed to be mediocre coaches. It’s like the good ol boy network. Honesty, loyalty and ethics don’t get them squat!

    $100.00 handshakes, punching cabbies and hypocrisy is the new way. Johnny Vaught is spinning in his casket.

    Hey PoopDog Roy, Where in God’s name could anyone, in there right mind, come up with the loads of worthless crap that you do? You must have a pitiful life.

  • Roy Munsun

    What a hire!! 4 years on Barbee’s staff! Auburn was a perennial door mat over those 4 years. Mediocrity is in full bloom for black bear’s basketball.

    Hiring this guy is the equivalent of Alabama firing Saban and hiring Ed Orgeron.
