The Andy Kennedy era in Oxford came to a crashing halt this season. After announcing he would step away from the program mid-season, it only took another week before Kennedy announced he would leave the program immediately following a crushing loss to Mississippi State.

Under Kennedy’s guidance this season, the Rebels would finish with the SEC’s worst record (5-13) and a dismal 12-19 overall record. While Kennedy wasn’t around to see the season finale, he will reportedly be around to analyze his former team’s performance in St. Louis.

The former Ole Miss coach is expected to participate in the television coverage of the upcoming SEC Tournament.

Ben Garrett of 247Sports was the first to report the news:

The news is also being reported by Davis Potter of the Oxford Eagle:

If Kennedy can’t find an attractive job during college basketball’s offseason, some have speculated he could wind up working in television. This opportunity should serve as a good showcase for Kennedy to show to TV executives just what he can bring to a broadcast.
