Ole Miss defensive assistant writes farewell as he parts ways with program
Ole Miss cornerbacks coach Terrell Buckley is no longer with the program, and he has shared his thoughts in a message on social media.
“Ole Miss Football and I have agreed to part ways. Thank you for the opportunity. The improvement we made defensively from year 1 to 2 was awesome. Players, you know where my heart is concerning you guys. Oxford is a special place. Thank you to entire Univ of Miss Family. TBuck,” he wrote on Twitter.
Buckley was part of Lane Kiffin’s original staff at Ole Miss, and Buckley, a College Football Hall of Famer, joined the Rebels after 4 seasons at Mississippi State. Buckley was a consensus All-American at Floria State as a junior in 1991 and won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back.
Before Mississippi State, Buckley coached at Louisville, Akron, and Florida State.
A native of Pascagoula, Mississippi, Buckley guided Pascagoula High School to a 1987 football state championship and undefeated season. He was inducted into the Pascagoula Athletic Hall of Fame in June 2018. He was born in Columbia, Mississippi, and spent most of his childhood in Gautier.
Buckley was picked 5th overall in 1992 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. He made 50 career interceptions and won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2001.
