Ole Miss wasted no time introducing their new head basketball coach. Andy Kennedy was introduced Friday in Oxford. A Mississippi native, Kennedy was Cincinnati's interim head coach this past season, leading them to a 21-13 record. The 38 year old no longer has to worry about job security, he'll get a four-year deal worth about $600,000 a year from Ole Miss.
Kennedy, Mississippi's top prep player in 1986, played at North Carolina State for one season under Jim Valvano before transferring to UAB.
