Michael Landers enters his first year as coordinator of basketball operations in 2012-13.

Landers' primary responsibilities will include the day-to-day operations of the program including travel, practice players, managers and camps. Landers joins Ole Miss from Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas where he most recently served as a co-head coach with wife and current Ole Miss assistant coach Kenya Landers.

"Michael is a two-time national championship coach at the junior college level and he has a great deal of experience as an administrator at the collegiate level," head coach Adrian Wiggins said. "He knows the game and has the ability to run a basketball program. I am excited to have someone with so much experience running a program join my staff."

Landers spent 10 years with TVCC (2000-09 and 2010-12), most recently serving as a co-head coach winning a national championship in 2011-12. He posted a 335-39 record and led the Lady Cardinals to two national championships and two undefeated seasons in 2012 and 2004. In his overall coaching career, Landers is 436-61. Landers also coached at East Texas Baptist University and Baton Rouge Community College.

He spent the 2010-11 season at Baton Rouge Community College, where he served as athletic director and head women's basketball coach. Landers led the first-year program to a 22-6 record and conference championship. He received his second JUCO National Coach of the Year award last year.

In his nine previous seasons as Lady Cardinal head coach, he amassed a 265-36 record to become the second-winningest coach in the program's 35-year history. Landers won eight conference championships and five regional championships. At five national tournaments, his squads twice finished seventh and once sixth to go along with the national title in 2004.

Landers came to TVCC from East Texas Baptist University. The ETBU women were NCAA Division II runners-up two consecutive years and compiled a 75-16 record in the three years he served as head coach. They were Heart of Texas Conference champions in 1998 and NAIA Far West Region Champions in 1999.
Before taking over the coaching position at ETBU, he served four years as the team's top assistant coach and recruiting coordinator.

Landers is a graduate of Gladewater High School and received his bachelor's degree in biology from ETBU in 1994 and his master's degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1997. In addition to his coaching duties, he also served as Assistant Vice President of Student Services at Trinity Valley Community College.
