Mizzou has reached an agreement with Head Baseball Coach Tim Jamieson to extend his contract three more seasons. Director of Athletics Mack Rhoades froze Jamieson’s base salary, but promises the program will receive a budget increase to help compete in the SEC.
“We are pleased Tim will continue to lead our program,” Rhoades said. “This year’s team made encouraging progress and we look forward to moving the program forward with the current roster of talented, young student-athletes in addition to the highly-regarded young men joining our program next year. We are committed to investing in our program and student-athletes in order to increase our competitiveness in the premier baseball conference in the country. Coach Jamieson led our program to high levels of success in the past and we anticipate the same in the future. Tim manages his program with great integrity and represents Mizzou in a first-class manner.”
“First, I want to express my gratitude to Mack and the rest of our administration for having confidence in my staff and I as we continue to improve our program alongside the best in the nation in the SEC,” Jamieson said. “We are coming off of a year that is more reflective of the success we saw throughout our tenure in the Big 12 and we will continue to get better as we take on the challenges of competing in the SEC. The commitment Mack and the administration have made to our program is reflected in the increase in our budget and I am beyond grateful to them for helping give us the resources we need to be even more successful in the SEC.”
The Tigers are coming off of a third-place finish in the SEC East Division with a 15-15 record. Mizzou was ranked as high as No. 14 nationally, but the team stumbled losing 14 of their last 18 games including two in the SEC Tournament. The Tigers missed the NCAA tournament
