OXFORD, Miss. - Adam Judge is a former NCAA All-American and Big Ten champion hammer thrower.

He is also a new assistant coach with Ole Miss Track and Field, head coach Joe Walker announced Thursday.

Judge will coach the Rebel throwers, a role he served for the last six years as an assistant coach at Indiana State.

"I am excited to have a coach with the success, background and passion that I found in Adam," Walker said. "I feel like he is a rising star in the throws coaching area and am eager to see all he can do at Ole Miss."

During Judge's time at Indiana State, Sycamore throwers won 11 conference events and competed in the NCAA Championships on six separate occasions. He also served as the program's recruiting coordinator.

Among his many prized pupils, Judge mentored 2011 NCAA indoor weight throw champion Felisha Johnson, as well as 2011 Indoor All-American Kelsey Hanley. He guided Brandon Pounds to shot put and weight throw titles at the 2009 MVC Indoor Championships, as well as a shot put crown at the 2009 MVC Outdoor Championships.

An outstanding collegiate athlete in his own right, Judge was the 2003 Big Ten champion and a two-time All-American in the hammer throw while at Indiana University. Prior to becoming a Hoosier, he was a three-time NJCAA All-American and a national champion in the hammer throw while attending Barton Community College in Kansas.

He joins current Ole Miss assistant coach Vanitta Kinard as former NCAA All-Americans on the Rebel staff.

After graduating from Indiana in 2003 with a B.S. in general studies, Judge served as a volunteer assistant coach with the Hoosiers. During that time, he trained and competed in the 2004 USA Olympic Trials in the hammer throw.

He and his wife, Beth, have two daughters: Maddison and Liv.
