Hannah Black, who recently wrapped up an All-American career at TCU, has joined the Ole Miss rifle program as assistant coach, head coach Marsha Beasley announced Thursday.

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Black earned All-America honors in smallbore and air rifle in 2015 and 2016. She helped lead the Horned Frogs to a runner-up finish in the NCAA Championships last season and third place in 2015.

“I am so excited to have Hannah join the program as our assistant coach,” Beasley said. “She has spent the last four summers as a coach with the Civilian Marksmanship Summer Camp Program. That experience combined with her outstanding college career at TCU and accomplishments as a member of the U.S. National Team will be invaluable to us.”

Black led TCU in 2016 with an average aggregate of 1173 and ranked fourth in air rifle at 591.23 and second in smallbore at 581.77.

“I am really happy and excited to be part of the Ole Miss Family,” Black said. “The people I have met so far have been great and the facilities are exceptional. I am also honored to have the opportunity to work with Coach Beasley. Her knowledge and coaching track record are second to none. I’m excited for this opportunity and will work very hard to help bring a national championship to Ole Miss.”

As a freshman in 2012-13, Black became the first Horned Frog since 2006 to qualify as an individual for the NCAA Championships and earned a fifth-place finish with a 594 in air rifle.

Black also has experience on the international stage. She earned a fifth-place finish in the Pan American Games in Toronto in 2015. In the fall of 2014, Black competed in the Championship of the Americas in Guadalajara, Mexico as well as the World Cup in Changwon, Korea in April of 2015. She also took part in the USA World Cup in Fort Benning, Ga., and the Munich World Cup in May of 2015.

Ole Miss football 2016: The strengths and weaknesses

As coach Hugh Freeze and the Ole Miss football team prepare for the 2016 season, here are the biggest strengths and weaknesses heading into fall camp.

OFFENSE

Biggest positive: The passing game. The combination of QB Chad Kelly and a receiving corps full of talent should light up the scoreboard. Ole Miss lost WRs Laquon Treadwell and Cody Core; they combined for 120 catches and 15 TDs. But there is plenty of talent remaining. WRs Quincy Adeboyejo and Damore’ea Stringfellow and TE Evan Engram figure to be the top targets. Joining the passing party will be Van Jefferson, Markell Pack and highly touted freshmen D.K. Metcalf (from Oxford) and A.J. Brown (from Starkville). Expect both freshmen to play early; wide receiver coach Grant Heard is known for rolling in receivers every snap.

Biggest negative: Left tackle is an issue. Ole Miss is looking for a replacement for NFL first-rounder Laremy Tunsil. Senior Jeremy Liggins, redshirt freshman Alex Givens and true freshman Greg Little – it could be any of the three starting against Florida State and that has to make line coach Matt Luke uncomfortable. If they can’t get the job done, projected starting C Robert Conyers could move outside. The line as a whole is in flux, but finding the left tackle is of the highest priority because it could have a domino effect.
