Mann and Hollender joining Mizzou staff

New Missouri basketball Cuonzo Martin’s coaching staff is now set.

Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported Tuesday evening that Martin will hire Oakland assistant coach Cornell Mann and UMKC assistant coach Chris Hollender as assistant coaches.

A source confirmed to The Star that Hollender will be joining Martin’s staff.

Mann spent one season with the Golden Grizzlies after working on Fred Hoiberg’s staff at Iowa State during 2011-15.

The Cyclones went 99-40 and reached the NCAA Tournament all four seasons during Mann’s time in Ames, Iowa.

Mann — who previously also served as an assistant at Dayton, Western Michigan and Central Michigan — was pivotal in recruiting point guard Monte Morris to Iowa State and has deep recruiting ties in Michigan.

Hollender, who worked the last two seasons on Kareem Richardson’s staff with the Kangaroos, spent 2012-15 as an assistant coach at Mississippi State.
