COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - New Missouri basketball coach Kim Anderson is retaining Tim Fuller, the associate head coach under Frank Haith.

Anderson moved quickly on his first staff hire Wednesday, two days after getting a five-year contract.

Fuller will enter his fourth season with the program. He earned the first five wins last season as acting head coach while Haith was suspended.

Anderson praised Fuller’s work in practices and recruiting the last few weeks while the school was looking for a replacement. In a statement, Anderson said Fuller has shown “incredible character and loyalty.”

After meeting with Anderson, Fuller said he was excited to take the offer.
