Former Rebel standout returns to Kennedy’s staff

Ole MIss men’s basketball coach Andy Kennedy has added a familiar face to his coaching staff. Todd Abernethy, who played for the Rebels from 2004-2007, has returned to as the Coordinator of Recruiting Development. The hire was announced this morning.

Abernethy played at Ole Miss for coaches Rod Barnes and Kennedy in 2006-07. He returns to Oxford after serving as the Director of Basketball Operations and Video Coordinator at IUPUI.

“I am very excited to announce that Todd Abernethy has returned to Ole Miss as a new member of my staff,” Kennedy said in a release from Ole Miss. “Todd was the starting point guard on my first team here and was instrumental in leading a team that had finished last in the division the year before to an SEC West  title his senior season. His experience, knowledge and passion for basketball and for Ole Miss will show in the contributions he will make to our program.”
