By Parrish Alford/NEMS Daily Journal

OXFORD, Miss. – According to Ross Bjork, one year has been added to the contract along with what is described as other minor changes regarding incentives.

With the additional year, Kennedy is under contract through 2015, one year less than four-year contracts allowed by state law.

Here’s the statement from Bjork:

“Andy and I spent some time together prior to and over the Final Four weekend and reached an agreement to extend the existing contract one year (through the 2014-2015 seasons) with minor changes to the incentive agreement in light of the additional SEC regular season games. I’m looking forward to learning more and watching this program get to the next level. I know Andy has the passion and has been committing the effort to get Rebel basketball there.”
