Patrick Drew Maddux lives in Nashville, Tenn with his wife Tara along with their three daughters and two sons. Since 2006 he has been Director of Admissions and Head Coach of the Boy’s Basketball team at Christ Presbyterian Academy and was promoted to his current position as Associate Head of School, Advancement in 2017. In 2020, Maddux became a best selling author with “Elevated” a motivational book on being the best version of you. The Tennessee native earned his Bachelor of Science from Vanderbilt University in Human and Organizational Development.
While at Vanderbilt, Maddux excelled on the court and in the classroom, earning All-SEC First Team and All-SEC Academic honors. Upon graduating in 1998, he quickly immersed himself in the local business community, while staying involved with his true love of basketball and mentoring young people. Before the age of 25, he became Executive Vice President of a regionally based restaurant chain while serving as a volunteer assistant coach at his high school alma mater. From there, he went on to co-found Healthcare Affiliate Partners in 2004 and worked as a college basketball analyst for Fox Sports South, Comcast Sports, and regional affiliates of Fox, WB, and UPN as well as co-hosting his own radio show on Nashville sports talk radio station 104.5 “The Zone.”
By 2006, everything came back full circle for when he accepted his current position at Christ Presbyterian Academy. Under his leadership, the basketball program at CPA has won numerous district and region titles, and back to back state championships in 2012 and 2013. He has had multiple players receive full athletic scholarships and win the annual TSSAA Mr. Basketball award. In addition to his work at CPA, Maddux continues to remain involved as a college basketball analyst and spends his summers coaching AAU Basketball.
“Drew Maddux is one of the hardest working and most talented individuals I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with at any level of coaching. He’s able to find uncommon success in both teaching life lessons and making the game of basketball great fun for his teams. His dedication to his players is unparalleled and he practices what he preaches to his team: that self-improvement, on the court and off, is truly a twelve month endeavor.”
Shaka Smart, University of Texas Head Coach
