Andy Kennedy and Ole Miss Agree to Extension

-

Ole Miss and head basketball coach Andy Kennedy have agreed to a four-year contract extension. Rob Dauster of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk reported the agreement.

Kennedy, who just wrapped up his ninth season with the Rebels, will be paid just under $2 million a year under the new contract. He was humble when addressing it.

“I greatly appreciate the opportunity I’ve been given to be the head basketball coach at Ole Miss,” Kennedy said in a statement. “As a native Mississippian, it is an honor to continue in my role as a head coach at Mississippi’s flagship university. I want to publicly thank Dr. Dan Jones and Ross for their unwavering support in our mission to continue to build Rebel Basketball into a program of national relevance.”

A native of Louisville, Mississippi, Kennedy has gone 192-114 since he began coaching in Oxford. He has helped lead the school to two NCAA tournaments and an SEC championship in 2012. On the whole, he owns a career mark of 213-126, having also spent a season at Cincinnati.

In 2014-15, Ole Miss went 21-13 (11-7 SEC) and won a spot in the big dance as a No. 11 seed after defeating BYU in the First Four. In the Round of 64, the team was defeated by No. 6 Xavier.
