Mizzou men’s basketball head coach Frank Haith announced that Kadeem Green is leaving the team due to personal reasons. Through the Tigers’ 13 games this season, Green was averaging three points and three rebounds in 11 minutes through the first 13 games of the season. Green has expressed interest in returning closer to home and family.

“We obviously wish Kadeem nothing but the best as he moves forward with this decision,” head coach Frank Haith said. “Kadeem made great strides during his time at Mizzou and we are sad to see him leave the program. This is a decision that did not come easily for Kadeem – he has made a lot of friends and he has really enjoyed his time here at Mizzou. Decisions like this are never easy, but we certainly thank Kadeem for the time that he dedicated to our program and want nothing but the best for him moving forward.”
