Missouri men’s basketball associate head coach Tim Fuller will not return next season, according to PowerMizzou.com.
Fuller, 37, joined the Tigers in 2011-12 as part of Frank Haith’s first staff. He was promoted to associate head coach before the 2012-13 season.
When Haith was suspended for the first five games of the 2013-14 season, Fuller stepped in on an interim basis and led Missouri to a 5-0 record.
Fuller, who grew up in Woodbridge, Va., and played at Wake Forest from 1996-2000, chose not to follow Haith to Tulsa when he left MU last spring and instead remained on first-year coach Kim Anderson’s staff for the 2014-15 season.
Never miss a local story.
The Tigers went 9-23 last season, setting a school record for most losses in a season and enduring a school-record 13-game losing streak along the way.
Fuller was chosen by ESPN.com as one of college basketball’s top 10 assistant coaches under 40 years old in May 2012.
His presence helped Missouri retain forward Jakeenan Gant and guard Namon Wright, who had signed in November and remained with the Tigers after Haith’s departure.
Fuller also helped land sophomore forward Johnathan Williams III and several key transfers, including Alex Oriakhi, Jordan Clarkson and Jabari Brown.
He made $325,000 last season, a $55,000 raise from his final year on Haith’s staff.
Before his arrival at Missouri, Fuller served as an assistant coach on Rick Pitino’s staff for one season at Louisville.
He also worked as an assistant under Ernie Nestor at Elon and served as director of basketball operations on Haith’s staff at Miami (Fla.).
Fuller, who worked for Nike from 2007-10, also served as director of basketball operations under Skip Prosser with the Demon Deacons before returning to the bench in 2006-07 as an assistant at Fairfield.
