Missouri has lost assistant coach Rick Carter, Tigers basketball coach Frank Haith said on Monday.
“We’re losing one,” Haith said.
Carter was hired in 2012, joining the program from Western Michigan, and primarily worked with Mizzou guards. A connection with fellow Tigers assistant Tim Fuller — both had worked at Fairfield — helped Carter land the job.
Speculation suggests that Carter eventually will join the staff at Xavier, although no announcement has been made.
Haith was coy about Carter’s replacement.
“We’ve already got (replacement) in play,” Haith said.
