The conventional wisdom says Missouri will target coaches with Power conference head coaching experience. That likely means candidates who will still be coaching after this weekend, so this won’t happen overnight. Kim Anderson wasn’t hired until April 28, which is late. It’s hard to imagine this search taking that long.
The NCAA recruiting period runs until March 29, then reopens and closes several times in April. With a coaching change, CJ Roberts, the one player Kim Anderson had signed for next season will be free to reopen his recruitment, if he chooses. There’s still one scholarship left, barring any more turnover.
