With Frank Haith's hiring as the new men's basketball coach at Tulsa imminent, Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star writes that Missouri is better off without the departed coach.
Mellinger says that Haith wasn't up for the job at Missouri. From his column:
"With Frank Haith expected to officially accept the Tulsa job, MU athletic director Mike Alden doesn't have to worry about firing a man three (or four) years into the job. The school owes him no separation pay and, actually, as part of his contract, Haith will have to pay Mizzou $500,000 for leaving. Alden should use the money as a signing bonus for a better coach."
