Assistant Coach

Alma Mater:
Memphis, 1991


Tony Madlock, who boasts more than 15 years of collegiate coaching experience, is in his first season as an assistant coach with the Rebels.

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

"We are very excited to add Tony to our coaching staff," Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy said. "His vast experience, starting as an outstanding player at Memphis, through his 17 years as an assistant at the Division-1 level, will allow him to bring a unique prospective to the players on our team. Tony carries an outstanding reputation as a tireless recruiter, who also does a great job as an on-court teacher. Everyone I talked to through this hiring process raved about his abilities."

This past season at Auburn, Madlock helped coach Chris Denson to All-SEC second team honors, 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, Tenn., 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.
