Newnan native and The Heritage School alumni Maddux Jeffreys has been promoted to Assistant Director of Operations for Auburn Men’s Basketball.

Jeffreys enters his seventh season overall with the program, after serving the last two years as a graduate assistant on Head Coach Bruce Pearl's coaching staff.

“Maddux is a true Auburn man,” Pearl said. “He loves the university, our players and our program. He has worked hard to get to this point in his young coaching career. From team manager to graduate assistant, and now, assistant director of operations. We are proud and fortunate to have another alumnus on our staff, who believes in Auburn and loves it.”

In his new role, he will assist in team travel, daily scheduling, analytics and scouting.

Jeffreys previously served as a four-year manager while an undergraduate at his alma mater. During his time with the Tigers, he was a member of the 2018 regular-season championship, 2019 SEC Tournament Championship and 2019 NCAA Final Four squads.

Originally from Mobile, Alabama, Jeffreys grew up in Newnan, and was a two-sport athlete playing football and basketball at The Heritage School. He is a lifelong Auburn Fan, and his career aspiration is to become a college basketball coach.

“I cannot thank Coach Pearl, and the rest of the staff, enough for the opportunity to continue working with the Auburn men’s basketball program,” Jeffreys said. “The last six years, working as a student and graduate assistant, have been nothing but incredible.

“Through the relationships built, memories shared and championships won, the Auburn Family has shown we are here to stay. Auburn is my home, and I cannot wait to contribute to the continued success of our program. War Eagle!”

A 2020 graduate of Auburn earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in marketing, Jeffreys also completed his master's degree coursework in education in December 2021. He is the son of Toby and Vicki Jeffreys and has three sisters: Katie, Kristen and Mary Helen.
