Andy Kennedy resigning from Ole Miss
He is expected to coach out the season. I doubt he is without a job for long.

Maybe i shouldn’t make suggestions this time around since I was clearly wrong the last time.

RE: Andy Kennedy resigning from Ole Miss
2 NCAA tournaments in 12 years isn't great, but 6 of those years in which they went to the NIT they were on the bubble. Leaves as the school record holder in wins.

I highly doubt we'd make a coaching change after Ehsan's 2nd year, but AK would be a perfect candidate for the seasoned assistant coach we've all been clamoring for. He probably can get a better gig, but maybe returning to his alma mater would be worth something to him.

RE: Andy Kennedy resigning from Ole Miss
Kennedy has accomplished an amazing job at what the toughest jobs In the country. Only Kentucky and Florida have more SEC wins in his tenure there. 12 years is an eternity in one job these days.

Rumors in Memphis is that Ole Miss will go after Penny Hardaway who is Ryan Boyce's high school coach and has S the #1 player for 2019 on his team. Also rumors that Calipari might hire Penny as an assistant at Kentucky.

1. We have a coach.
2. We can't afford him
3. There may be skeletons.

RE: Andy Kennedy resigning from Ole Miss
I would absolutely love if Andy would come here, but to be honest, we can't afford him. He's making 2 million a year now, probably wouldn't want to take less than 1 million at a new gig.

CUSA is a one bid league. Hasse won 27 games and we were not even in the conversation for an at large bid.

It would be hard for us to justify paying that much to a coach when we can't count on NCAA tourney money, and don't have the attendance to cover the costs without it.

Creates an interesting scenario but I doubt anything more than that. Now if things continue to head south this year with next year no better and AK is still unemployed at that point, then I think you will have a realistic scenario where this could happen. This year I just don’t see it.

So, we're about to have another Demarcus Cousins scenario....
