Report: Kermit Davis interested in Ole Miss job, would accept offer

Ole Miss’ search for a new basketball coach is in its infancy after Andy Kennedy announced on Monday that he will be stepping down at the end of the season.

That doesn’t mean the Rebels do not have some interested candidates, including Middle Tennessee coach Kermit Davis who, per RebelWalk.com, would accept the job if offered.

Davis, who has been the coach of the Blue Raiders since 2002, has turned the program into a mid-major power, making the NCAA Tournament the last two seasons and will likely be dancing in March this year as well. The Blue Raiders sit at 17-5 (9-1 Conference USA) on the season. Davis’ team served up one of the most memorable moments of the 2016 NCAA Tournament when, as a No. 15 seed, they upset No. 2 seed Michigan State in the first round.

This story will be updated.
