After his 12th season at the helm of the Ole Miss Basketball program, head coach Andy Kennedy will step down, according to CBS’ Gary Parrish.

The news comes after the Rebels fell on the road to LSU 82-66 on Saturday, and the team is in the midst of a five-game losing streak. Ole Miss has six games remaining in the regular season and currently hold a sub .500 record at 11-14.

During Kennedy’s tenure, the Rebels have been to the NCAA tournament twice, they won the SEC tournament in 2013, and as mentioned by Parrish, Kennedy is the school’s all-time winningest head coach.

A press conference has been scheduled for later this afternoon. This story will be updated as we receive new information.
