OXFORD – Ole Miss head basketball 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 I 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.”
