Brittney McLaughlin recently completed her second season on the Ole Miss volleyball staff as the program's director of operations. McLaughlin came to Ole Miss after having served as an assistant coach for the University of Tampa in 2011, where she helped guide the program to a 33-2 record and a national semifinalist finish in the Division II NCAA Tournament.
One year earlier, McLaughlin was a volunteer assistant coach for her alma mater, Jacksonville State, where the Gamecocks recorded a 16-14 record. As a student-athlete at Jacksonville State, McLaughlin was a four-year letter winner at outside hitter, helping guide the Gamecocks to three Ohio Valley Conference regular season championships, two OVC tournament championships and a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances in 2006 and 2009.
As a freshman with the Gamecocks, McLaughlin was the OVC Freshman of the Year and a Second Team All-OVC and OVC All-Newcomer Team selection.
McLaughlin was a First Team All-OVC selection as a junior and senior, and helped lead Jacksonville State to the second round of the NCAA Tournament during her senior season.
A Boonville, Ind., native, McLaughlin led the Boonville High School volleyball team to a pair of state runner-up finishes in 2004 and 2005. A multi-sport athlete, McLaughlin was also a four-year letter winner in basketball, and a two-year letter winner in track and field.
The daughter of Michael and Karen Whitten, McLaughlin has one brother, Kyle, and sister-in-law, Stephanie Whitten. McLaughlin received her bachelor's degree in English from Jacksonville State in 2010. McLaughlin and her husband, Matthew, live in Oxford, Miss., with their cat, Lily, and dog, Grace.
