OXFORD M.S. (WOLO TV)  — Ole Miss men’s basketball coach Andy Kennedy announced today that he will step down as head coach at the end of this season.

Kennedy held a press conference this afternoon, where he stated that it is time for a new voice and a new vision moving forward. He went on to mention that he feels that speculation about his job status has created a distraction for the program.

This year the Rebels under coach Kennedy are 11-14 (4-8 in the SEC). They have only won three of their last 12 games and are currently on a five game losing streak.

Kennedy is currently in his 12th season as the Rebels head coach, with an Ole Miss career record of 245-154, which makes him the winningest head coach in school history. He has led the Rebels to 11 consecutive winning seasons, two NCAA tournaments, and two NIT final four appearances.
