It’s standard operating procedure for college coaches in Mississippi to have their contracts periodically extended to the four-year maximum allowed by the state. But Ole Miss has chosen to not extend the contract of men’s basketball coach Andy Kennedy.
On this episode, Parrish discusses why that might be the case (3:31). It could be athletic director Ross Bjork is making a statement about the need for Kennedy to get the Rebels back into the NCAA tournament. There is good reason to believe that will happen next season, as Kennedy is bringing in his strongest signing class to date.
We also have some MSU hoops talk. Logan notes the strength of this current signing class, headlined by Nick Weatherspoon (8:55). Coach Ben Howland is entering his third season in Starkville, and the third year is when he has historically taken programs to a higher level.
On the baseball field, MSU looks to keep the momentum from its series win at Texas A&M when it hits the road again to meet Georgia (14:48), while Ole Miss deals with struggles heading into a series against A&M (18:47).
Other topics today include Ole Miss and the NCAA investigation (1:11), and Ole Miss softball (13:24).
