Coaching Alert! Coaching alert!! COACHING ALERT!!!!
Ole Miss will part ways with their coach Andy Kennedy at the end of this season. He turned around the Rebels' program in 12 years to make them a contender. Could this be a good chance for Conque to get him to come to the Jack? What do you think?

Even if he is damaged goods, I doubt that he would have to take a job at quite our level. Could be wrong.

I like Andy Kennedy, if for on other reason that he was willing to bring his Ole Miss team to the Stephens Center. I wouldn't rule out his coming here if we were to have an opening. I always liked the idea of a "retread". Typically to me that means a coach that has won big at our level, but was unable to do so when they moved up. When I saw Dennis Felton, on the bench, as an assistant at Tulsa (he won big at WKU, no so big at Georgia) I thought he would be a great candidate for our job. Well, he finally did get another head coaching job- He is 7-20 at Cleveland State right now. Shows how much I know.

I think Kennedy is a good coach. The "posse" finally got him after 12 seasons. I think tomorrow night against the pigs will be his 400th game at Ole Miss. Hope his guys play hard for him.

I saw he is making 1.9 million at Ole Miss according to Wikipedia. We might be able to pay him 20% of that. It still seems like a person could squeak by making 380K, not that I would know.

Rumor is Ole Miss will hire Steve Forbes who is 72-24 at East Tennessee State. He was 62-6 at Northwest Florida State (Juco). Not too shabby.

RE: Coaching Alert! Coaching alert!! COACHING ALERT!!!!
There are caveats on both sides of the new coach issue. If you hire an experienced HC from a higher level, you have proven experience, but you also may have an attitude issue (I'm only here because I have to be). If you hire a young assistant, you get energy and enthusiasm, but not much experience. Occasionally you find one (e.g. Beard) who has only been an assistant at D1, but who has HC experience at other levels. That is probably the best of all worlds, but they are not too easy to find.

It is about the time of the year for the old Coaching Carousel to begin revolving. That is almost a season in itself.
