OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA/Ole Miss Athletics) – Ole Miss head football coach Matt Luke announced Wednesday the hiring of Tyler Siskey to the recruiting office as assistant athletics director.


Siskey returns to Ole Miss after spending three seasons at South Alabama, serving as wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator and two years at Alabama, where he oversaw the recruiting operation for Nick Saban’s staff.

He previously served on the Ole Miss staff as coordinator of recruiting development in 2012. He helped oversee recruiting efforts for the 2013 class that featured four first-round NFL draft picks and was regarded as one of the top five in the nation by analysts and recruiting services.

“Tyler has a tremendous track record of success in recruiting, and we are excited to have him back on our staff,” head coach Matt Luke said. “Our coaches continue to recruit at a high level, and with the addition of Tyler, we look forward to taking our efforts to even greater heights.”

While at South Alabama, Siskey mentored all-Sun Belt receivers Jamarius Way and Josh Magee. Way hauled in 47 catches for 762 yards and three scores during the 2017 campaign to earn second team all-conference honors. Magee, who ranked among the top five in the Sun Belt in both receptions and receiving yards per game in 2016, signed a free-agent contract with the Atlanta Falcons following his senior season.

Siskey joined the Crimson Tide program in March of 2013 as the associate director of player personnel before being promoted to the director position less than a year later for the 2014 season. In his role, he was responsible for organizing all of UA’s recruiting efforts, helping the program put together the No. 1 signing class in the country that February according to all four major recruiting services.

Prior to Ole Miss in 2012, Siskey was the wide receivers coach at fellow Sun Belt Conference member Arkansas State for four years, helping the Red Wolves set single-season school records for passing yards, completions, passing touchdowns and passing yards per game during his tenure. In 2011, Dwayne Frampton broke ASU’s single-season reception record and ranked 13th nationally in catches as the Red Wolves finished the regular season ranked in the top 25 in the country in total yards and passing offense.

He also has coaching experience in Mobile having served as an assistant for four years at St. Paul’s Episcopal School. Siskey was the Saints’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2007 when the team claimed the state 5A championship, helping St. Paul’s advance to postseason play each of his first three years at the school as well; after making the playoffs in 2004, the school moved on to the quarterfinals each of the next two seasons.

Siskey began his coaching career as a student assistant at Troy, where he would go on to earn his bachelor’s degree in 2000. He was an offensive graduate assistant at Northwestern (La.) State during the 2001 season, before joining the staff at Arkansas State as an offensive graduate assistant from 2002-03.

Siskey earned a bachelor’s degree in sports and fitness management from Troy in 2000, followed by a master’s degree in education from Northwestern State in 2003.
