Missouri Tigers Football Coach Gary Pinkel will be roaming the sidelines at Faurot Field for at least another five years. The University of Missouri and Pinkel have agreed to terms on a new five-year contract, keeping Pinkel in charge through the 2011 season. The new contract replaces one that would have expired at the end of 2008. Pinkel, who came to Missouri from the University of Toledo, is in his sixth year at the helm of the Tigers, with an overall record of 36-33. This season’s 7-3 Tigers are likely headed to a third bowl game in four years. The new pact calls for Pinkel to receive a guarantee of $1.3-Million per year.
