Missouri associate head coach Tim Fuller received a $55,000 raise after agreeing to remain on the men’s basketball staff.

Fuller, who joined the Tigers when Frank Haith arrived in 2011, will be paid $325,000 this season, according to MU Athletics.

That is a raise from the $270,000 Fuller made each of the last two seasons.

Fuller opted to stay at Missouri rather than follow Haith to Tulsa in April, when Kim Anderson was hired as the 18th head coach in program history.

Anderson, who was the Big Eight co-player of the year in 1977 for the Tigers and led Central Missouri to the NCAA Division II national championship last season, retained Fuller on his staff.

He also brought assistant coach Brad Loos with him from Central Missouri and hired former Huntington Prep (W. Va.) coach Rob Fulford for to round out his staff.

Both Loos and Fulford will receive $160,000 this season.

New strength and conditioning coach Matt Herring, who previously spent time at the University of Florida and with the San Antonio Spurs, is set to make $90,000.

Director of basketball operations Bryan Tibaldi, another holdover from Haith’s staff, will receive $80,000 this season, while Paul Rorvig, who was hired Aug. 1, will make $60,000.

Rorvig will oversee academics and compliance for men’s basketball in addition to assisting with the team’s video operations.

Anderson’s incentive-laden, five-year contract provides $1.1 million guaranteed plus an additional $100,000 in deferred compensation annually.

With incentives, Anderson’s contract maxes out at $2.45 million per season.
