At a glance

Tim Jamieson:

  • Is an alumnus of Rock Bridge High School in Columbia.
  • Played college baseball at the University of New Orleans.
  • Has led the team to eight NCAA Regional appearances, including a win in the 2006 Malibu Regional.

Jamieson first came to Missouri as a coach after six years on the staff of New Orleans, his alma mater. He worked under former Tigers head coach Gene McArtor from 1988 to 1994, then took the reins of the program in 1995. 

Success came early in Jamieson's head coaching career, as he led the Tigers to a Big Eight Conference championship in 1996, the year he was also named the conference's Coach of the Year.

Jamieson's greatest run of success came from 2003-09, years when Missouri won 35 games or more and made an NCAA Regional. The Tigers won the 2006 Malibu Regional, despite being seeded fourth out of four teams, and advanced to the 2006 Fullerton Super Regional.

After winning the Big 12 Conference title in 2012, Missouri's final year in the conference, Jamieson has presided over the team's transition to the Southeastern Conference. In 2013, the Tigers struggled to adjust to an uptick in the level of competition, and the team finished with a record of 18-32. 

Jamieson has coached eight All-Americans during his time as head coach at Missouri. During the summer of 2011, he served as head coach of the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team.

Five of Jamieson's former players at Missouri — Aaron Crow, Ian Kinsler, Max Scherzer, Kyle Gibson and Nick Tepesch — played on Major League Baseball teams in 2013, and Scherzer won the 2013 American League Cy Young Award. 

Jamieson and his wife, Cindy, have two sons, Mickey and Ty.
