After 22 years and 698 wins, Mizzou’s head baseball coach is stepping down.
Athletic Director Mack Rhoades announced the resignation of Tim Jamieson on Saturday morning. Mizzou says it’s looking into whether Jamieson can stay on with the school in an athletics administration role, and will conduct a nationwide search for his replacement.
Rhoades praised Jamieson’s tenure. “Coach Jamieson has been an outstanding leader for Mizzou for more than two decades. We are grateful for his devotion to Mizzou, and more importantly, the tremendous impact he’s had on hundreds of young men.”
That impact includes eight All-Americans and 10 Freshman All-Americans, along with four forst-round draft picks among 75 players selected by MLB. His teams went to nine NCAA Regionals, and won the 1996 Big Eight title and the 2012 Big 12 Tournament Championship.
Jamieson said in a statement Saturday: “I would like to express my appreciation for all the players and coaches who I have had the honor of working with during my 28 baseball seasons at the University of Missouri. I am proud of what they have accomplished in the sport of Baseball but more importantly how positively they have represented the Mizzou Baseball Program as well as the University of Missouri. I am also thankful for the opportunity that I have had to lead this program and for all the great people that I have met along the journey. This is a special place and I wish great success as the program moves in to the future.”
Jamieson’s head coaching record at Mizzou stands at 698-565-2.
