Frank Haith Biography
Frank Haith was born November 3, 1965 in Queens, New Yorkand is currently the men's basketball head coach at the University of Missouri.
On April 4, 2011, Haith accepted the head coaching job at the University ofMissouri. The Missouri Tigers needed a coach after Mike Anderson left theTigers to go back to Arkansas where he had been an assistant for 17 years. Thejob was originally offered to Matt Painter who turned Missouri down. Haith'sfirst team will have six seniors and will have been to the NCAA tournament eachof the last three seasons.
In August 2011 Haith was named in the Nevin Shapirorecruiting scandal at Miami in which Haith was purported to haveacknowledged that Miami assistant basketball coach Jake Mortonreceived $10,000 from Shapiro to recruit DeQuan Jones. Haith and Miami presidentDonna Shalala were photographed with Shapiro in a 2008 basketball fundraiserreceiving a $50,000 check from Shapiro (which Shapiro said came from his Ponzischeme). The move prompted Sports Illustrated columnist Luke Winn to urge thatHaith be put on administrative leave before the season even begins (Winn hadearlier been critical of Missouri's decision to hire Haith who had a 43-69conference record at Miami). Haith said he would cooperate with theinvestigation and that the allegations are not an accurate portrayal ofmy character.
In his his first year at Missouri Haith inherited a teamthat a year before went 23-11 (8-8) and lost in the first round of the NCAAtournament. From that team only nine players were returning for Frank Haith'sfirst year and the previous coaching staff had not gotten any recruits tocommit so Haith in a short amount of time was able to sign some talentedtransfers from Auburn, Pepperdine, and Oregon. Unfortunately they would have tosit out his first year do to transfer rules which left him with a short bench.The bench got even shorter when Sr. Laurence Bowers went down with a torn ACLbefore the season began and after the first semester when So. Kadeem Greentransfered. Bowers was the teams second best returning scorer and bestreturning rebounder. The loss of both Bowers and Green left Haith with only twopost players and just seven total scholarship players for his first season atMizzou. To make up for that Haith and his staff put into place a four guardsystem and made opposing teams try to adjust. What the Tigers lacked in sizethey made up for with speed, passing, and outside shooting. The season went sowell that going into post season play the Tigers set a record for the most regularseason wins ever with 27. The Tigers went 13-0 in the non-conference and 14-4in Big 12 play.
