One day after Texas A&M’s season came to an end with a loss to Mississippi State in the second round of the SEC tournament, the school announced Friday that it has relieved Billy Kennedy of his head coaching duties.

The Aggies finished the 2018-19 season with a 14-18 record, finishing the year with just seven available scholarship players. In eight seasons at Texas A&M Kennedy amassed a record of 151 wins and 116 losses, leading the Aggies to two NCAA tournament appearances and an SEC regular season title (2015-16).

Given the conference and location the Texas A&M job will be one of the best available on the coaching carousel this spring. Multiple outlets have mentioned Virginia Tech head coach and Texas native Buzz Williams as someone the powers that be at Texas A&M will look to discuss the job opening with. Williams was an assistant on Billy Gillispie’s staff at Texas A&M from 2004-06.
