OFFICIAL; Anderson done at Mizzou

The Kim Anderson era at Missouri will end after three disappointing seasons after first-year athletic director Jim Sterk announced Sunday that he’d asked Anderson to step down as men’s basketball coach after the Tigers’ final game this year.

“This decision has been very difficult for me personally because of the tremendous respect I have for Kim,” Sterk said in a release from the school. “I know how hard he and his staff have worked to turn the program around over the last three years, however, the lack of on-court success has resulted in a significant drop in interest surrounding our program, and we could not afford for that to continue another year.”

Multiple sources told The Star that Parker Executive Search will assist Mizzou in the search for its next coach.
