COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Missouri coach Gary Pinkel says he has no plans to make dramatic changes after a disappointing SEC debut that saw the Tigers go 5-7 and miss a bowl appearance for the first time in eight years.

Pinkel met with reporters on Tuesday, three days after a season that began with high expectation ended with a 59-29 loss at Texas A&M. Missouri’s only conference wins in eight tries came against Kentucky and Tennessee, two schools that wound up firing their coaches.

Pinkel called fan disappointment a sign of success at a school with 53 wins since 2007.

The coach said he has no immediate plans to retire and won’t make any changes to his coaching staff.
