OXFORD, Miss. -- After three seasons at the helm, Brian O'Neal is resigning as Ole Miss track & field head coach to pursue other professional opportunities, it was announced here Monday.

"I am announcing today my resignation from Ole Miss as its head track coach," O'Neal said. "I do so with a heavy heart, but I believe this action to be in the best interests of the university and my own interests. I am most appreciative to Ole Miss for my education, its role in shaping my opportunities, and for the opportunity to return to our track as its head coach and not simply as an athlete.

"I am proud of our accomplishments during my tenure, both the success on the track and the academic and personal successes of our student athletes off the track. I wish the program and Ole Miss the best and great success in the future. Hotty Toddy and Go Rebs!"

"We support Brian and the decision to resign from his position," said Ole Miss Athletics Director Ross Bjork. "We appreciate all his hard work as our head coach the last three years and his contributions as an assistant coach and student-athlete. Brian is a member of the Ole Miss family, and we wish him the best."

A Pontotoc native and 1993 Ole Miss graduate, O'Neal was in his second stint on the Rebel staff after serving as an assistant coach from 1992-2005 following a year as a graduate assistant. He was also an assistant coach at Florida from 2009-12.
