The first domino falls
Multiple sources have told PowerMizzou.com that Tim Fuller will not be on the Missouri bench next season. Fuller and the Tigers are parting ways after four seasons.
Fuller was hired at Missouri by Frank Haith prior to the 2011-12 season. He came to Columbia from Louisville, where he had been an assistant for Rick Pitino. Prior to his second season, Fuller was elevated to associate head coach at Missouri and even served as the Tigers' head coach when Haith was suspended for the first five games of the 2013-14 season. Missouri won all five games.
After last year, Haith took the job at Tulsa, but Fuller opted to stay in Columbia and join Kim Anderson's staff. He was considered a key to the Tigers being able to retain the commitments of Namon Wright and Jakeenan Gant after the coaching change.
Fuller was also the primary recruiter for many Tiger players over the last four years, including transfers Jabari Brown, Jordan Clarkson and Alex Oriakhi as well as last year's leading scorer Johnathan Williams III.
In Anderson's first season, the Tigers suffered through a 9-and-23 campaign that included a 13-game losing streak. The University has not yet made any statement on Fuller's future, but an announcement is expected by the end of the week. Fuller did not return messages asking for comment for this story.
