Malloy, Ole Miss Agree to Contract Extension
Aug. 16, 2017

OXFORD, Miss. – After guiding Ole Miss to its first NCAA Championships appearance since 2001, men’s golf head coach Chris Malloy has agreed to a contract extension through the 2020-21 season, Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics Ross Bjork announced Wednesday.

“In just three short years under Chris Malloy, the men’s golf program has reached new heights,” said Bjork. “From team tournament titles to Braden Thornberry’s national championship, winning has become the standard for Ole Miss Golf. With Coach Malloy leading the way, we will continue to ride the momentum into the future.”

“I’d like to personally thank Ross, (Executive Associate A.D.) Lynnette Johnson and Chancellor (Jeff) Vitter for their commitment to me and the Ole Miss men’s golf program,” said Malloy. “Three years ago, I was granted the opportunity to return to Ole Miss and take the team to a new level of success. I began my playing career as a Rebel, and I want to finish my coaching career as a Rebel. I am ecstatic to remain here for years to come.”

Through three seasons as head coach, Malloy has brought the Rebels into the national spotlight. Since he took the reins of the program, Ole Miss has captured five tournament titles as a team to go along with nine wins by individual Rebels. Under Malloy’s tutelage, sophomore Braden Thornberry became the first national champion in Ole Miss Golf history and earned the 2017 Fred Haskins Award (nation’s most outstanding collegiate golfer).

Malloy coached Ole Miss to four tournament victories during the 2016-17 season as the Rebels earned a berth to a NCAA Regional for the second time in the last three years. The team won the Franklin American Mortgage Company Intercollegiate at the Grove (Nashville, Tennessee), the AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic (Atlanta, Georgia) and the Princeville Warrior Invitational (Kauai, Hawaii) last fall before claiming the Lamkin San Diego Classic (San Diego, California) in the spring. In two of those wins, Ole Miss shot 831 as a team for the second-best tournament score (54 holes) in school history. Following a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Regional in Austin, Texas, the Rebels advanced to the NCAA Championships for the first time in 16 seasons. There, Thornberry used an 11-under 277 over four rounds to capture the individual national title.
