A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells the Associated Press that Frank Haith has agreed to leave Miami after seven seasons and take over as coach at Missouri.
Haith’s deal with Missouri is not yet finalized, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because no contract has been signed. Missouri officials are scheduled to meet late tonight to confirm terms of the contract.
Miami officials did not return messages seeking comment late Sunday, and the Hurricanes’ players had not been told of Haith’s decision as of Sunday night.
Haith has two years left on his contract with Miami, worth a total of about $3 million. He has gone 129-101 in seven seasons with the Hurricanes.
