Mizzou alum and coach at Central Missouri (D2 I think?).
So much for making a splash hire for the conference uggh. I hope he does great things, but man......I wonder what the guy in the full Mizzou outfit from head to tie at the SEC tourney thinks about this?
Well she did just win a DII title....sooo.
Is he like a boy named Sue?
Missouri is a very attractive spot for coaches.
Give this guy two or three years and then we will see how good he is.
He's a Missouri guy and that's apparently what they wanted. Yes he did just take a team not expected to compete all the way to the D2 title. But he is also 58 and a career assistant until this recent D2 job. I'm all for hiring the guy with a background at your school, as long as that isn't the top selling point. We'll see.
I am sure he is a great guy, but how do you name your son Kim.
This was a reach. It may work, but it was a reach hire. And mizzou shouldn't have to reach.
I don't get why no one wants Ben Howland.
Because of the guaranteed losses to Florida perhaps
Mizzou fans: "Who are we hiring?"
AD: "Its Kim...Kim from Central Missouri."
Mizzou fans: "Well she sounds hideous."
Others including Franz, think this is not a reach. Ryan at Wisconsin and Pearl at Tennessee proved you can find experience coaches at lower levels, but have experience in-state.
This guy played for Norm Stewart so by all accounts he is a Missouri guy.
After watching Haith squander the talent he inherited, I imagine the Tiger alumni are glad to have Anderson

Man, she is hot.
Bingo. It takes some real effort to make Steve Alford look like a magnanimous dude, yet somehow in contrast with Howland Alford comes off like a humanitarian. Howland had entirely lost control of the program his last few years.
Pearl coached in Tennessee? I know he was at Wisconsin-Milwaukee before UT and coached at Iowa under Tom Davis.
I guess my overall impression is, he just made it to Div 2 and he is 58? Not damning but definitely not what I call an "up-and-comer." Getting someone like that should be more like Bill Guthridge taking over as a loyal assistant over the years from a legacy coach. Leaving your coach and landing in Central Missouri is kind of a timid track to your dream job.
Maybe they thought they were getting Mike Anderson's sister.
I am sure the are differing opinions.
I think pulling a guy with no D1 head-coaching experience is a reach for a school like Mizzou. That doesn't mean he will not be an excellent coach. We will see.
But I think they reached.
