COLUMBIA — Tim Fuller has been promoted to associate head coach for Missouri's men's basketball program, head coach Frank Haith announced.
Fuller, a native of Woodbridge, Va., and a Wake Forest University alumnus, was one of Haith’s first hires at Missouri after taking over as the 17th head coach in Tiger basketball history. Haith said that elevating Fuller to associate head coach was a natural fit for the program.
"Tim was such a vital part of our success this past year, he absolutely impacted all facets of our program in a positive way," Haith said. "He's a terrific recruiter — I think that's been proven in his short time here — and he's an outstanding coach, and more importantly, he's the kind of man you want developing and shaping young men. The work he did with our guys on the court this past season with their skill development, as well as his scouting and game prep work, was top-notch. We want to be able to keep him here a long time."
Fuller was the lead recruiter for incoming Tigers Stefan Jankovic and Negus Webster-Chan, as well as transfers Alex Oriakhi, Earnest Ross, Keion Bell and Jabari Brown.
