OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss men’s golf head coach Chris Malloy announced the addition of former Rebel Kyle Ellis as assistant coach Wednesday.
Ellis, a four-year letterwinner for the Rebels from 2004-06 and 2008, returns to Oxford after five-year career on the NGA Tour from 2009-13. Ellis posted one career victory at the Chattahoochee/Hospice Classic in 2010 and posted a career-best fifth-place finish on the NGA Tour money list that season. He has also competed in the Web.com PGA Tour Qualifying School event four times and served as a private golf instructor.
“We are extremely excited to have Kyle and his wife, Lauren, back in Oxford,” Malloy said. “It is truly a special opportunity anytime that you can bring a former player back to help lead the current team. Kyle has had tremendous success as a player, winning multiple events on the collegiate and professional level. This is another great day for Ole Miss golf!”
“I am extremely excited to return to Oxford and work with the Rebel golf team,” Ellis said. “You can feel the excitement surrounding Ole Miss throughout the entire athletic department, and I cannot think of a better opportunity to help give back to the university!”
The Senatobia, Mississippi, native ranks sixth all-time in Ole Miss history with 14 career top-10 finishes and posted two career wins in his four seasons. Ellis led the team with a 72.38 stroke average as a senior in 2008 and helped the Rebels advanced to the NCAA Championships East Regional.
