Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy is taking time off at the recommendation of his doctor because of an undisclosed medical condition.

The university said in a release Friday night that he will undergo some testing and be evaluated by his doctor before returning to coach the Aggies.

Associate head coach Glynn Cyprien will be in charge of the team until Kennedy returns. Cyprien led the players through their first practice on Friday and will be with the team at Midnight Madness.

In the release Kennedy said, "Don't worry, I'll be back soon."

The 47-year-old was hired from Murray State in May after Mark Turgeon left to become Maryland's coach.
