Ole Miss has officially added a pair of assistant coaches to Lane Kiffin’s staff for the 2024 season.

The Rebels announced the hirings of new wide receivers coach George McDonald and new tight ends coach Joe Cox on Thursday. McDonald will also serve as Ole Miss’ passing game coordinator.

“We are continuing to elevate our coaching staff to a championship caliber with the addition of Coach McDonald and Coach Cox to our staff,” Kiffin said in a statement. “Both coaches have been a part of innovative and productive offenses in their careers, and they have proven their ability to recruit and develop talented players at an elite level.”

McDonald spent the past 3 seasons as Illinois’ wide receivers coach and assistant head coach. His coaching career includes stops at programs such as Syracuse, NC State and Miami, amongst others.

Cox was at Alabama from 2022-23 as the Tide’s tight ends coach. He’s also worked for Charlotte, South Carolina and Colorado State during his coaching career.
