It appears Frank Haith is on the way out as Mizzou head basketball coach.
Haith is reportedly in negotiations to become the head basketball coach at Tulsa. ESPN.com is citing one unnamed source as saying that Haith has verbally agreed to the Tulsa job and that he is traveling to Tulsa to finalize the deal.
Haith just finished his third season at Missouri in which it missed the NCAA tournament despite a talented roster. His is also one of the Mizzou athletic programs that has suffered off-the-playing-surface problems lately with the arrest and dismissal of Louisville transfer Zach Price.
Haith is believed to have 3 years left on his contract at Mizzou, at $1.5-million a year. CBSSports.com cites sources as saying Tulsa is willing to pay him more than $1-million.
