Ole Miss basketball coach Kennedy settles lawsuit

Ole Miss men’s basketball head coach Andy Kennedy has agreed to settle a lawsuit stemming from a December 2008 run-in with a cab driver in Cincinnati.

The Clarion-Ledger on Tuesday reported that Kennedy will pay an unspecified amount of money to drop a defamation lawsuit against Mohammed Jiddou and valet Michael Strother, if the two men in turn apologize to Kennedy and drop any potential countersuits.
