COLUMBIA — Missouri associate head basketball coach Tim Fuller was named one of the top assistant coaches under the age of 40 by ESPN on Tuesday.

Fuller was promoted to associate head coach last month after just one year at Missouri.

He was the lead recruiter of four transfers that are expected to make a big impact for the Tigers this season: Keion Bell (Pepperdine), Earnest Ross (Auburn), Jabari Brown (Oregon) and Alex Oriakhi (Connecticut).

Fuller actively coaches from the sidelines during games, and several players from last year's team point to Fuller as someone who played a huge role in their development.

Fuller played at Wake Forest University from 1997 to 2000 and is 34 years old.
