Two months ago, Kenny attended an assistant coaches seminar put on by the NBA and will be coaching/teaching in the Orlando Pre-Draft Camp later this month. Two years ago he was a volunteer assistant coach at St. Thomas Aquinas in Ft. Lauderdale, near where he lives and this past season he was the head coach of the Atlanta Krunk of the CBA and coaches Steph's brother Zach.''
