Tim Fuller has been promoted to associate head coach of the Mizzou men’s basketball team, MU announced Wednesday.

“Tim was such a vital part of our success this past year. He absolutely impacted all facets of our program in a positive way,” MU coach Frank Haith said in a statement. “He’s a terrific recruiter – I think that’s been proven in his short time here – and he’s an outstanding coach, and more importantly he’s the kind of man you want developing and shaping young men. 

“The work he did with our guys on the court this past season with their skill development, as well as his scouting and game prep work, was top-notch.  We want to be able to keep him here a long time.”

Haith, a former Wake Forest assistant coach, has known Fuller, 34, since Fuller's playing days at Wake from 1997-2000. Haith hired him from Louisville as he formed his first Mizzou staff last year.

MU went 30-5 in Haith's first season and has two openings to fill on its staff. Assistant coach Isaac Chew left after the season to become the top assistant at Illinois, and basketball operations coordinator Tony Hanson took an assistant job at Winthrop.
