Fresh off the SEC Tournament Championship and NCAA tournament appearance, Ole Miss basketball coach Andy Kennedy is awarded a contract extension.

The new deal will keep Kennedy with the Rebels through 2017.

The four-year deal is the longest allowed by the state of Mississippi and includes a base salary of $1.8 million, which ranks sixth among SEC head coaches.

Ole Miss tied a school record with 27 wins this season and advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament before losing to LaSalle.
