COLUMBIA — Former Missouri basketball coach Norm Stewart has left his job as a university ambassador now that a $1 billion fundraising campaign is complete.
The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame member retired from coaching in 1999 with 731 career victories. He stuck around as special assistant to the chancellor and helped with the "For All We Call Mizzou" campaign.
The 74-year-old Stewart recently told friends and supporters he is no longer working for the university. Chancellor Brady Deaton told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he hopes Stewart and his wife will continue to represent the school when the next major fundraising campaign begins.
