Marc MacMillan, assistant baseball coach at Ole Miss, is leaving the university to be the head coach at Charleston Southern University.

MacMillan has been with the Rebels for the past seven years as an assistant coach. He is a former Rebel baseball player and has coached nearly every position at Ole Miss.

The new position will be MacMillan’s third time as a head coach. Before joining the Rebels, he was an associate head coach at the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff, and head coach at Crichton College and Memphis University School, both in Tennessee.

Ole Miss seems to be excited for MacMillan and his new opportunity.

“You’re getting a good one @CSUBucsBaseball! Thank you to @CoachMac_23 for all you’ve done for the REBS over the past seven years!#HottyToddy | @CoachMikeBianco.

MacMillan helped Ole Miss to a 16-1 season this past year before the season came to an early end due to COVID-19 restrictions.

He helped the Rebels go to a College World Series, two NCAA Super Regionals, five NCAA Regionals, an SEC tournament title and one runner up performance.
