ST. LOUIS — The search has begun for the new coach at Missouri.
Missouri has hired an outside firm to assist in the search. It did the same thing before hiring Mike Anderson, who left the school after five seasons Wednesday to take the open job at Arkansas.
Missouri never quite became a must-see team under Anderson. It made the NCAA tournament three years in a row, but seemed to regress this season after briefly cracking the Top 10. Missouri was 23-11, but only 1-7 in Big 12 road games.
Athletic director Mike Alden has a history of hiring coaches from mid-major schools who've been assistants at the Division I level.
