“Many college basketball players dream of this day, but when I had to finally make this decision it was difficult because it means I am leaving a place I love so much”
The move comes as Missouri prepares to enter the Southeastern Conference.
Missouri athletic director Mike Alden says the move to the SEC is going to require a sizable increase in private giving.
Like other Division I programs, Missouri allows major donors to purchase empty seats on team planes when traveling to big events.
Most of the changes are directly connected to the football program, which includes Faurot Field, ticket prices, and the Tigers’ uniforms.
Listen to Mike Alden break down the suspension plus additional penalities for Gary Pinkel. Kevin Wheeler gives his take on the situation that quickly happened in Columbia.
Gary Pinkel, the coach for Mizzou since 2001, will be back for the game against Kansas plus the bowl game is Mizzou qualifies.
Listen to the entire official announcement that was made at the Mizzou Student Center on Sunday. Speakers included Brady Deaton, Mike Alden, Bernie Machen, and Mike Slive.
Asked if he supports Haith, Alden replied, “We support the NCAA process.”
“We want to make sure we’re surrounding ourselves with people who want to be at Mizzou,” said athletic director Mike Alden.
