Tim Fuller will take over head coaching duties for the Missouri Tigers while Frank Haith serves his 5 game suspension.

Haith was suspended by the NCAA for “Failure to promote an atmosphere for compliance”. Haith said he chose Tim Fuller over other assistants because he is the Tigers longest tenured assistant coach. This will be Fuller’s third season with the Tigers.

During the suspension Haith will not be able to attend any practices or games, but he is still able to travel to recruit as well as work in his office.

Haith will not be able to rejoin the team until Nov. 25th after the Tigers take on IUPUI.
