Tom  Luke

Assistant A.D./Player Development

Alma Mater:
Ole Miss, 1992

Former Ole Miss quarterback Tom Luke returned to his alma mater in May 2013 when Hugh Freeze hired him as Assistant Athletics Director for Player Development.

The brother of Ole Miss offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator Matt Luke, he oversees various aspects of academics and campus life for Rebel players. His guidance has helped raise the players’ standards in the classroom and off the field, as the team posted its highest GPA in history for the spring 2016 semester.

Luke has helped the Rebels reach bowl games in each of his three seasons, including back-to-back New Year’s Six appearances.

Luke was Ole Miss’ coordinator of football operations from 2004-05 under David Cutcliffe and Ed Orgeron. He had spent the last few years in the sporting goods business.

He spent 12 years teaching and coaching at Jackson Academy prior to his first stint on the Ole Miss staff.

Luke earned three letters (1989-91) while playing quarterback at Ole Miss, but suffered three concussions during his career, which led to his decision to pass up his senior year and accept a coaching position on the high school level.

He ended his career ranked 17th in passing with 1,524 yards, completing 86 of 178 passes with 10 interceptions. At the time, he also ranked 17th in career total offense with 2,078 yards (554 rushing and 1,524 passing).

After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Ole Miss in 1992, Luke began teaching and coaching at Jackson Academy. During his nine years as offensive coordinator, Jackson Academy won four Mississippi Private School Association state titles and was twice state runner-up. As the head baseball coach from 1995-2001, Jackson Academy won two MPSA state championships.

Luke is married to the former Angie Pope of Clinton, Mississippi, also an Ole Miss graduate and former Rebelette in “The Pride of the South” marching band. They are the parents of one son, Cale, and two daughters, Carson and Cayden. Cale is currently a wide receiver at Ole Miss.
