NEW ORLEANS — Frank Haith capped his first season at Missouri by being selected The Associated Press' Coach of the Year.

Haith took over at Missouri after seven years at Miami. He was presented the award Friday after receiving 21 votes from the 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.

Missouri won 30 games and the Big 12 tournament and was ranked in the AP poll the entire season, reaching second for one week and third in the final poll. The voting was done before the NCAA tournament.

The Tigers were a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament but were knocked out in the first round by Norfolk State.

John Calipari of Kentucky and Tom Izzo of Michigan State tied for second with 10 votes each.

The only other Missouri coach to win the award was Norm Stewart in 1994.
