Ole Miss' Andy Kennedy to step down

Ole Miss & Basketball Coach Andy Kennedy To Part Ways

Ole Miss has hit the ground running toward building a nice 2019 recruiting class as the Rebels have just added commitment No. 8 less than a week after the 2018 class became official.

Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy will step down at the conclusion of the season.

The 49-year-old now has a 245-154 record in his career at Oxford, making him the winningest coach in school history.

The Rebels have lost five straight games and are now 11-14 on the year. He led the Rebels to nine 20-win seasons, more than every other coach in program history combined.

Under Kennedy, the Rebels finished.500-or-better eight times in conference play (fourth in the SEC). If he does indeed finish the season with Ole Miss before parting ways with the program, that number will obviously change.

The recent NCAA sanctions levied on the Ole Miss athletic department centered on the football program under Hugh Freeze. He will step down at the end of the season.

Ole Miss went to the NCAA tournament in 2013 and 2015 and made six NIT appearances under his guidance.

Kennedy was hired in March of 2006, replacing Rod Barnes, who at the time was the most successful coach in program history. The team then defeated Wisconsin in its first NCAA Tournament game, but fell to La Salle in the next round. Over the last 11 seasons, 12 Ole Miss guards have earned All-SEC honors; only two other schools have accomplished that feat. The Rebels will return to the hardwood Tuesday night, facing Arkansas at The Pavilion.

Bjork noted the search for a new coach will begin immediately, He credited Kennedy for making the announcement now and giving the school plenty of time to find his successor.
