Former Ole Miss hoops standout Todd Abernethy is in his fourth season with the Rebels and his third as an assistant coach. Abernethy served as coordinator of recruiting development and acting assistant coach for the Rebel basketball staff in 2014-15 before moving to a full-time assistant.

Last season, Abernethy helped coach Ole Miss to 22 victories and a berth into the quarterfinals of the National Invitational Tournament. Rebel guards flourished with Abernethy's guidance as Miami (Fla.) transfer Deandre Burnett led the team in scoring (16.5 ppg) and Terence Davis emerged with a breakout sophomore season. After averaging only 1.8 ppg as a freshman, Davis' scoring exploded to 14.9 ppg last year.

During the 2015-16 season, Abernethy and the Rebels won 20 games for the second-straight season and under Abernethy's tutelage senior guard Stefan Moody earned first team All-SEC honors for the second-straight season.

In his first season back in Oxford, Abernethy helped the Rebels win 21 games and advance in the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three seasons. Under his guidance, Moody earned All-SEC first team honors from the Associated Press and the league’s coaches.

A three-time team captain and fan favorite for the Rebels from 2004-07, Abernethy returned to Oxford after serving as the director of basketball operations and video coordinator at IUPUI in 2013. There, he assisted the Jaguars’ coaching staff with day-to-day operations, administrative functions and video coordination.

Following his Ole Miss playing days, Abernethy began a six-year international professional career that included stops in the Netherlands, Estonia, Latvia, Poland and the Ukraine. In 2010, he helped his Tartu Rock squad to the Estonia National Championship, while later helping BK Ventspils to the Final 8 of the EuroChallenge in Latvia in 2012. He later founded the Todd Abernethy Basketball Camp, training the top high school players in Latvia.

A Carmel, Indiana native, Abernethy finished his Ole Miss career with 1,036 points and ranks fourth in school history with 431 assists. He earned All-Southeastern Conference honors in 2006-07 and was voted the league’s Sixth Man of the Year in 2004-05. A three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member, he earned his degree in banking and finance in 2007 and was Ole Miss’ nominee for the H. Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete Post Graduate Scholarship.

Todd and his wife, Micah, a former Ole Miss cross country and track letterwinner, have two daughters, Ruthie and Maria, and a son, Jack.
