Billy Kennedy

Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy won’t be back for a ninth season according to multiple people with knowledge of the situation, the Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday.

Kennedy, 55, graduated from Holy Cross School before attending Delgado and Southeastern Louisiana. He later served as SLU’s head coach (1999-2005) following two seasons in the same role at Centenary.

The reported early target for a replacement is Virginia Tech coach Buzz Williams, a former A&M assistant under Billy Gillispie from 2004-06 whose first head coaching job was a one-year stint at the University of New Orleans in 2006-07.
