In remarks delivered last Thursday on ESPN, Ole Miss Basketball Coach Andy Kennedy reports that Marshall Henderson is doing what he has been asked to do since his indefinite suspension from the team earlier this month.
“He is suspended indefinitely,” Kennedy said on ESPN. “We don’t start back school until the end of August. There is a plan put in place from my administration through Marshall. Marshall’s been compliant to is point of taking care of some things off the court so that he can hopefully join us when the fall term begins at the end of August. And then we’ll start working through the process to get him back on the court.”
Henderson has allegedly failed drug tests and trace amounts of marijuana and cocaine were allegedly found in his car after he was stopped by the Oxford police last spring.
The Ole Miss Guard was not charged in the incident.
In the ESPN interview and in a story posted on the Clarion-Ledger website, Kennedy added, “We don’t condone everything Marshall has done, he’s certainly made some mistakes but we’re working through this as a family.”
