Tony Madlock, who boasts more than 20 years of collegiate coaching experience, is in his fourth season as an assistant coach with the Rebels.

Last season, Madlock helped guide the Rebels to 22 victories and a trip to the NIT Quarterfinals. He coached Sebastian Saiz to all-league honors and a record-breaking senior season. Averaging 15.1 ppg and 11.4 rebounds per game, Saiz set the school record by pulling down 409 boards throughout the year.

During the 2015-16 campaign, Madlock and the Rebels won 20 games for the second time in as many seasons in Oxford. Senior guard Stefan Moody earned first team All-SEC honors for the second-straight season and Madlock helped coach Saiz, who finished fourth in the SEC in rebounding. 

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

Madlock, who spent four seasons as a member of Tony Barbee’s staff at Auburn, has also coached four seasons as an assistant at UTEP and nine seasons at Arkansas State.

At Auburn, Madlock helped coach Chris Denson to All-SEC second team honors in 2013-14, and he recruited three top-100 players to the Plains during his time with the Tigers.

In his four years at UTEP, Madlock recruited 2010 C-USA Player of the Year, Randy Culpepper, and Arnett Moultrie, a 2009 C-USA All-Freshman Team selection. UTEP won the 2010 Conference USA Championship with a 26-7 overall record and a 15-1 league mark as the Miners advanced to the NCAA Tournament before losing to eventual NCAA runner-up Butler.

He also coached Stefon Jackson, who is the all-time leading scorer in UTEP and Conference USA history, All-CUSA second-team selection Derrick Carracter, who was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2010, and C-USA All-Defensive Team member Julyan Stone.

Madlock spent six of his nine years at Arkansas State as the assistant head coach prior to going to El Paso. He helped Arkansas State to the 1998 Sun Belt Conference regular season championship and the 1999 Sun Belt Conference tournament title, as he recruited six junior college All-Americans to the school.

He also recruited the only junior college player in Arkansas State history to score 1,000 points in two seasons. He coached four all-conference players and the Sun Belt Conference Newcomer of the Year.

Madlock began his coaching career as an assistant and teacher at his alma mater, Melrose High School, in Memphis. The Golden Wildcats posted a 67-29 mark over the three seasons with Madlock on the staff, and Melrose was the 1997 state tournament runner-up with a 32-7 record.

Madlock also starred at Melrose, receiving honorable mention All-America and first-team All-State honors as a point guard while lettering three years.

Madlock earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Memphis in 1991 in 3.5 years. The Memphis, Tennessee, native capped off a successful career at Memphis in helping the Tigers to the 1992 NCAA Tournament Elite Eight to go along with four-straight postseason appearances.

A four-year letterman and three-year starter for Memphis from 1988-92, Madlock was a member of four postseason tournament teams for the Tigers, reaching the NCAA Tournament and NIT two times each.

He still ranks among the school’s all-time leaders for games played (128) and averaged in double figures as a junior and senior.

Madlock played one year of professional basketball in South America prior to starting his coaching career.

Born Feb. 17, 1970, Madlock is married to the former Stacie Bryant of Memphis. They have two children, a daughter, Kyndal, and a son, T.J.
