Marshall hasn't heard from Mizzou
As soon as Missouri's head coaching job came open, speculation began to center around Wichita State's Gregg Marshall. But three days later, Marshall's agent says he has not heard from Missouri.
"We have not had any contact," Myles Solomon told PowerMizzou.com.
The Tigers officially did not have an opening until midday on Friday. The holiday weekend may have delayed the start of the coaching search a bit. Reports have had Missouri making some initial inquiries to coaches and also coaches reaching out to Mizzou. But at this point, Solomon says Marshall is not one of them.
"I don't know what to expect from Missouri, actually," he said. "These things end up going in directions that people don't expect at the beginning. I think any response would be based on their approach. I can't really predict the future right now, but we haven't had any contact with them. If they do contact us, then certainly we would listen to what they have to say."
Marshall signed an amendment to his contract in September of 2013 after the Shockers reached the 2013 Final Four. He is under contract for seven years and currently makes $1.75 million per year.
PowerMizzou.com will continue to follow the Tigers' coaching search to its conclusion.
