Mizzou set to hire Haith

It appears Frank Haith will be the new head basketball coach at the University of Missouri.

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 and no contract has been signed.

The University Board of Trustees will meet tonight to approve the contract. Sources say a news conference will take place tomorrow.

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.
