Isaac Brown has taken over as the interim head coach at Wichita State. It’s a difficult situation that requires steady hands with the departure of Gregg Marshall just a few days before the start of the season.

With that in mind, Brown has added New Orleans native Billy Kennedy as an assistant coach.

“I am excited about the opportunity to be part of a new season at Wichita State,” Kennedy said. “The chance to work alongside Coach Brown and invest in these young men is a blessing.”

Kennedy has decades of Division I experience including head coaching stints at Texas A&M (2011-19), Murray State (2006-11), Southeastern Louisiana (1999-05) and Centenary (1997-99). Overall, the Holy Cross and SLU alum is 361-294 as a college head coach.

The 56-year old has also served as an assistant at UNO (1986-87), Northwestern State (1988-89) and Tulane (1989-90) among other stops.
