Andy Kennedy to step down at Ole Miss after the season

In News by Blake Lovell

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

According to Gary Parrish of CBS Sports, both parties will announce the mutual parting of ways at a Monday afternoon press conference.

Kennedy has served as the team’s head coach for 12 seasons, and will leave as the all time winningest coach in Ole Miss history.

While the Rebels have struggled to an 11-14 record this season, they’ve experienced plenty of success during Kennedy’s tenure.

In his 12 years on the job, Ole Miss has won 20 or more games nine times, went to the postseason eight times (two NCAA Tournament appearances), and never finished lower than sixth in the SEC.

The Rebels will play their final game of the regular season at home on March 3 against Vanderbilt.
