Andy Kennedy, the winningest coach in Ole Miss men's basketball history, will step down at the end of the season, according to multiple reports, citing unidentified sources.

A native of Louisville, Kennedy has amassed 245 victories during his 12 seasons as head coach at Ole Miss.

Shy of a health or other personal issue that will prevent him from coaching, Kennedy will have a new job for next season if he wants one.

Trump Jr . has been a target of criticism for his role in a 2016 meeting with a group of Russians at New York's Trump Tower. The New York Daily News reported slightly different wording: "You're an terrible person and now you get what you deserve".

Kennedy's resignation, which was first announced by Rivals.com's Neal McCready, will be effective at the end of the season. "With that, I'd like to address this ominous cloud that seems to be hovering over our program", Kennedy said. Since then, the Rebels are one of only 14 teams nationwide to have 11 straight winning seasons.

Under Kennedy, the Rebels finished.500-or-better eight times in conference play (fourth in the SEC).

Ole Miss is often second to Mississippi State for top in-state prospects and the Rebels struggle to pry Memphis players away from the hometown Tigers or other schools that recruit the city. "We will continue to support our student-athletes, Coach Kennedy and his staff, to build the program into a consistent NCAA tournament team". He led the Rebels to 2 NCAA Tournaments and 2 NIT Final Fours.

It also hasn't said if there will be any other requirements - such as paying off your device entirely - before it'll be unlocked. AT&T is the strictest, requiring 60 days and an additional 14 days for old phones from which customers upgraded to new phones.

That track record might not get fans in Lexington, Chapel Hill or Lawrence excited, but Ole Miss doesn't have the resources most power-conference schools possess. The Rebels' memorable run as the 2013 SEC Tournament champions resulted in a trip to the NCAA Tournament, where the Rebels upset No. 18 Wisconsin in the opening round. Kennedy has guided 16 All-SEC selections, including the likes of Marshall Henderson, Stefan Moody and Sebastian Saiz. Tipoff is slated for 6 p.m. CT on SEC Network.

Ole Miss Athletics Director Ross Bjork sat beside Kennedy during the press conference.

Those two tenures have gone pretty differently, as Saban has won numerous national titles and Shula only had one winning season. It's likely that the Giants will draft a quarterback this spring, and Shula will work closely to develop whoever that is.
