Drew Clinton began his current career in 2005 as senior academic counselor for women's basketball, softball and volleyball. After adding women's soccer, men's basketball, books/supplies and tutor coordinator duties to his list of responsibilities, Clinton was promoted in 2008 to assistant director and again in 2012 to his current title of associate director. He is now responsible for the academic needs of men's basketball and men's tennis, in addition to overseeing the academic counseling side of Student-Athlete Development. He was the 2011 recipient of the Excellence in Advising award, which is presented annually to a University of Mississippi professional staff member in recognition of outstanding academic advising.

Prior to his move into academic counseling, Clinton served as an assistant women's basketball coach at Middle Tennessee State University for two seasons. While in Murfreesboro, Clinton helped guide the Lady Raiders to consecutive NCAA Tournament bids and two Sun Belt Conference Tournament titles. Before working at MT, Clinton worked three seasons with the Ole Miss women's basketball team, spending the final year as the director of basketball operations for the Rebels under former head coach Ron Aldy.

Clinton got his start in athletics as sports manager for the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) at its national headquarters in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. For three years, his duties included overseeing the AAU girls' basketball and AAU golf national programs. In addition to his work at the national AAU office, Clinton coached several teams that were successful at the highest level of AAU competition.

Clinton attended Ole Miss after concluding high school at Memphis Harding Academy in 1990. He later graduated from Tennessee-Chattanooga in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in sports administration. An Olive Branch, Mississippi, native, he is married to the former Kelley Dean of Memphis. They have a son, Rhodes, and two daughters, Nora and Cadence.
