2009 NCAA CHAMPION

Seven years after becoming the youngest NCAA Singles Champion in Division I history, Ole Miss men’s tennis great Devin Britton joined the staff in June, 2016 as assistant coach.

A Jackson, Mississippi native, Britton assumed the position after serving the previous three years as a student assistant while completing his degree.

In his first year as a full time assistant, Britton helped the Rebels earn their 24th consecutive NCAA appearance and reach the second round for the 24th year in a row. Individual honors included three players among the top 25 final national rankings in singles and doubles and two All-SEC Team members. Off the court, the Rebels posted the highest GPA among all male sports at Ole Miss and placed seven of eight team members on the SEC Academic Honor Roll.

During his time as a student assistant, the Rebels continued their streak of NCAA appearances (23) and finished the 2015 season ranked No. 17 in the nation. Individual honors included three All-America selections, SEC Player of the Year and six All-SEC selections.

Prior to returning to Ole Miss to complete his degree, Britton spent five years on the professional circuit, where he won 12 ITF Futures and two ATP Challenger doubles titles, to go along with a singles title in the Sacramento Futures in June 2012.

Britton was ranked as high as No. 378 in the world in singles and No. 119 in doubles. He also received a wildcard into the 2009 United States Open as the reigning NCAA singles champion, where he faced then-No. 1 and 17-time grand slam champion Roger Federer in the first round.

After a stellar junior career, Britton joined the Rebels in the spring of 2009 and became the youngest player ever, and just the third freshman, to win the NCAA Singles title. He was the first freshman in the history of the program to earn All-America honors and finished that year ranked No. 19 in the nation in singles. Britton helped lead the Rebels to their fifth SEC Championship, their third SEC Tournament Championship, the NCAA Elite Eight and a final national ranking of No. 4.

Britton is excited to remain with the Rebels and help bring a national championship to the program as a coach.

“It’s an incredible opportunity to have been successful here as an athlete and now to be a coach here,” Britton said. “As a student assistant, I had the chance to work under two of the best coaches in Billy Chadwick and Toby Hansson, and I’ve learned a lot from them. I am excited for the future of the program.”

Britton graduated from Ole Miss in May of 2016 with a degree in managerial finance.
