"“It has been such an honor to be the Head Coach at The University of Missouri and live in this community for the past 20 plus years. From the first day I was recruited by Coach Larry Smith and stepped on campus as a student-athlete, this place became HOME. This was never just a job to me! I’m thankful for Coach Gary Pinkel giving me an opportunity in college coaching … I am so thankful for all of my players over the years, you guys have changed my life for the better. Thanks to my staff, you all gave Mizzou your best and our kids the support and platform to be successful. I wish the Mizzou Program all the best moving forward."
