No Extension For UM’s Kennedy

There will be no extension for Ole Miss basketball coach Andy Kennedy this year.  His current $1.3 million deal (that’s per year) is still set to expire after the 2013-14 season.

Athletic director Pete Boone tried to put a good spin on his decision.  He told Kyle Veazey of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger today that “The measuring stick is pretty good out there, overall.”  He made note of Kennedy’s high winning percentage, his four 20-wins seasons, his four NIT berths, a good graduation rate, and a clean bill of health from the SEC.

All true.  But the coach has yet to reach an NCAA Tournament in five tries and the lack of an extension now makes his buyout all the more manageable should push come to shove next March.

“I still have an absolute ton of confidence in Andy.  But at this time, as (Kennedy) said, it’s a business.  We’re both excited about going forward.”
