VIDEO: ‘Randy Kennedy’ makes his return to Ole Miss

While Andy Kennedy has been the head coach at Ole Miss since 2006, leading the program to seven postseason appearances and seven 20-win seasons, he also has an alter ego who want some respect for his own coaching chops. “Randy Kennedy: Landshark Legend” is the winningest coach in city youth league history, and in the video below he interrupts ESPN analyst Jay Bilas’ preparations for an interview with the Ole Miss head coach.

Unfortunately for Randy, the city youth league (8 and under division) he claims to have dominated does not keep score. So we’re not sure exactly how many “wins” he has on his resume. 

As for Andy Kennedy’s accomplishments in Oxford, he’s the program’s all-time winningest coach (192 wins). And prior to his arrival Ole Miss had a total of seven 20-win seasons and nine postseason victories throughout the history of the program. Andy’s matched those numbers, and with senior guard Stefan Moody leading the way for a group that returns three starters from last season the hope in Oxford is that they can put together another successful season. 

Here’s to hoping that at some point Andy Kennedy shows up on the sidelines as Randy, but we’re not holding our breath. 

Ole Miss lands three-star 2016 center

Ole Miss picked up a commitment from a key Class of 2016 target on Tuesday night as three-star center Nate Morris pledged to the Rebels.

A native of Texas, the 6-foot-10 Morris played for the Dallas Mustangs in the adidas Gauntlet and he hails from Lancaster, Texas. A solid post player who does a nice job playing with physicality, Morris should be a productive player for head coach Andy Kennedy, as he’s active and hits the glass hard.

Morris is the fourth commitment for Ole Miss in the Class of 2016 as he joins three-star guard Breein Tyree, three-star small forward Justas Furmanavicius and JUCO forward Tyrek Coger.

Monday marked the return of Randy Kennedy, the head coaching alter ego of Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy. Randy coming back meant some rambling press conference responses in a video from the Ole Miss twitter.
