A&M taps Murray State’s Kennedy

May 16, 2011


— Billy Kennedy returned to Texas A&M; on Sunday, leaving Murray State to replace Mark Turgeon as the Aggies’ basketball coach.

“I think he is the perfect fit for Texas A&M;,” athletic director Bill Byrne said in a statement. “In talking to several people who I respect in college basketball, they mentioned Billy as an outstanding basketball coach, but an even better person.”

Turgeon left last week to coach Maryland.

The 47-year-old Kennedy, a former assistant at A&M;, will be introduced on the campus today.

Kennedy was the Ohio Valley Conference coach of the year twice in his five seasons with the Racers.
