With or without Michael Porter Jr., Cuonzo Martin keeps Mizzou in the present

Mizzou is 8-2, already matching its win total of last season, because of men’s basketball coach Cuonzo Martin’s ability to keep the Tigers moving forward after the potentially devastating injury to much-ballyhooed freshman Michael Porter Jr. Now, amid speculation that Porter could return this season, Martin’s task remains the same: to keep the team in the moment as he builds a program.

Mizzou’s Barry Odom names a defensive coordinator but loses another assistant to UCF

Missouri Tigers football coach Barry Odom said he found out Friday morning that Tigers’ offensive line coach Glen Elarbee will be joining former Mizzou offensive coordinator Josh Heupel at Central Florida. Neither Heupel nor Elarbee will coach Missouri in the Texas Bowl on Dec. 27 in Houston. Odom also announced Friday that secondary coach Ryan Walters has been promoted to defensive coordinator and that Jon Cooper, an offensive analyst for Missouri, will be the Tigers’ offensive line coach for the bowl game.

Prior scheduling pits Mizzou’s Cuonzo Martin against former teammate Saturday

The Missouri Tigers play a pair of teams coached by men with ties to Cuonzo Martin, which is something he’s not a fan of. “It’s already tough enough to win games and I wouldn’t want a loss one way or the other from a friend,” Martin said. The Tigers beat Miami of Ohio on Tuesday, a team coached by Jack Owens, who was an assistant coach at Purdue after Martin left to become coach at Missouri State. On Saturday, Missouri plays Green Bay, whose coach is Linc Darner, Martin’s teammate at Purdue.
