Following in the foosteps of his mentor Bobby Huggins, not-getting-any Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy proves to be an entertaining, if more sober, squad car cam performer. From the always-estimable Sharon Coolidge of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Former University of Cincinnati basketball coach Andy Kennedy pleaded for his release after his Dec. 18 arrest on charges he assaulted a cab driver, a Cincinnati police cruiser camera shows….

œI™m here for the Big East/SEC challenge, Kennedy says. œI™m playing Louisville ¦ tomorrow. I was the UC head coach. I am going to be on national television. If I™m not standing there at 9 p.m. tomorrow, this is an international altercation.

œIt™s not worth it, please trust me, Kennedy said.

The officer says he was aware the arrest could be newsworthy.

œYou think we™ve never arrested somebody that™s made national media? he said. œWe deal with the Bengals all the time.
