(Columbia, MO) — Missouri is reportedly set to hire Miami head coach Frank Haith to replace departed basketball coach Mike Anderson. Most had speculated that the Tigers, after being turned down by Purdue’s Matt Painter, would kick the tires on names like VCU’s Shaka Smart or Minnesota’s Tubby Smith. Instead they turned to Haith, who has a 129-101 record with one NCAA Tournament appearance in seven seasons with Hurricanes. He is 43-and-69 in ACC play, including 10-and-22 over the past two seasons.
