Mizzou set ot hire Heath

It appears the next head basketball coach at the University of Missouri will be Frank Haith.  A person with knowledge of the negotiations says Haith has agreed to leave Miami after seven seasons and take over as coach at Missouri.

Haith's deal with Missouri is not yet finalized. The University Board of Trustees will meet tonight to confirm terms of the contract.

Haith has two years left on his contract with Miami, worth a

total of about $3 million. He has gone 129-101 in seven seasons

with the Hurricanes.
