Andy Kennedy had stepped down as the Ole Miss Rebels head coach. The school announced the move is effective immediately.

Kennedy was expected to step down at the end of the season, the school announced on Monday. Now, he’ll have some time to regroup before looking for employment elsewhere if he wants to find a job next season or take a year off.

Assistant coach Tony Madlock will serve as the interim head coach for the rest of the season.

“It has become readily apparent to me that my continued presence as the head coach is proving detrimental to these players finishing the season in a fashion that is representative of The Standard for this program that has been clearly established and maintained for over a decade; therefore, I believe that it is in everyone’s best interest that I exit my role as head coach effective immediately,” Kennedy said. “We all know that ‘clean breaks’ are always best, and I should have realized this last Monday. My apologies.”

Kennedy was the Rebels head coach for the past 12 seasons, becoming the school’s all-time wins leader. He had a 245-156 record at the school.
