Brian Mackay enters his fourth season as the coordinator of video services for the Rebel basketball team.
Mackay's primary responsibilities include film exchange, video editing, working alongside the coaching staff with opponent scout films and the production of highlight films. He will also serve as the liaison between the women's basketball team and Ole Miss alumni, the strength & conditioning department and the academic department. On top of those duties, he will help keep the team's Facebook, Blog, and YouTube pages up-to-date and full of information.
A 2008 graduate of Ole Miss with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism, with an emphasis in Public Relations, Mackay is no stranger to the Rebel basketball program as he served as a student manager from 2004-07. In his final season as a student manager, Mackay was on the sidelines for the Rebels' improbable run to the 2007 Elite Eight.
A native of Pass Christian, Miss., Mackay is the son of David and Connie Mackay. David played high school basketball under legendary Ole Miss head coach Van Chancellor at Harrison Central High School, while Connie played for Chancellor at Ole Miss in 1979 alongside current Ole Miss head coach Renee Ladner, former associate head coach Peggie Gillom-Granderson and former Rebel head coach Carol Ross.
Mackay's sister Laura is completing a Bachelor's degree in ElementaryEducation at University of Southern Mississippi-Gulf Park and his brother, Craig, is also at the University of Southern Mississippi-Gulf Park, finishing up a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology.
