Former Rebel standout linebacker and Chucky Mullins Award winner Dr. Jamil Northcutt returned to Ole Miss as Assistant Athletics Director for Internal Operations in January 2008.

Entering his fifth year, Northcutt oversees Camps and Clinics, Housing, Minority Affairs, Champs Life Skills/SAAC, Exhausted Eligibility Student-Athletes, M-Club (letterwinners), NCAA Opportunity Fund and Special Assistant Grant, Cheer and Dance Programs, Team Apparel, Athletic Sustainability efforts, special events and serves as the Athletics Directors' liaison to the Football, Men's & Women's Basketball and Baseball programs. He also works closely with the Athletics Director regarding capital campaign projects, fiscal documents, special projects and analytical research information.

Upon his return to Ole Miss in 2008, Northcutt established the Grove Bowl Stage Program, which connects former Ole Miss football standouts and NFL players back to the program and educates the Rebel fans about the NFL and transitioning to alternative careers other than sports. Additionally, Northcutt created and developed the Rebels' Choice Awards in 2011, which is a spin-off of the popular ESPY Awards held each year by ESPN. The Rebels' Choice Awards features awards given to student-athletes in 17 categories and showcases the spirit and success of Ole Miss Athletics through presentations, performances and video productions.

A Tullahoma, Tenn, native, Northcutt returned to Ole Miss from the Kansas City Chiefs organization where he spent three years as the Player Development Coordinator. With the Chiefs, he served as KC's liaison for players to coaches, administrators and external resources, evaluated and scouted college and professional football players and assisted with travel and gameday operations. He also managed the career internship, continuing education and financial education programs for players.

Before joining the Chiefs in June 2005, Northcutt worked for the Southeastern Conference in the areas of Championships, Sports Administration, and Marketing.

As a member of the Rebel football team, 1999-2003, Northcutt was the 2003 Chucky Mullins Courage Award recipient and helped the Rebels finish his senior year 10-3 and win the Cotton Bowl, marking the fourth bowl appearance of his tenure. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder played in every game his final two years, highlighted by an interception and 19-yard return in the 2002 victory over Memphis.

For his efforts in the community, Northcutt was selected to the 2003 AFCA and SEC Good Works Teams and received the SEC Community Service Postgraduate Scholarship. He also was a member and President of a number of organizations such as the Student Leaders Council, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, the M-Club, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and the FCA Leadership team.

Northcutt also excelled in the classroom making the SEC Academic Honor Roll four years. He received his bachelor's degree in exercise science in May 2003 and his master's in higher education and administration in December 2004. Northcutt completed his doctorate in Higher Education (Administration) in August of 2013. He and his wife, Kimberly, a fellow Ole Miss graduate, were married in July 2006. They have a son, Kellen Josiah, and a daughter, Laylah Elise.
