Missouri Extends Baseball Coach to 2015

The Missouri Tigers announced Tuesday the extension of Head Coach Tim Jamieson’s contract through 2015.

Jamieson and the Tigers won the Big 12 Tournament in their final year in the conference following a year where they were Big 12 runners-up to Texas A&M. The 19-year head coach is the longest tenured of any sport at Mizzou, 13 of which eclipsed 30 wins.

The height of Jamieson’s tenure came in 2008, when the team won 39 games and was ranked No. 2 in the country.

“We’re so pleased with the job Coach Jamieson is doing with our program” director of athletics Mike Alden said in a statement. “Coming off of the Big 12 Championship, we are looking forward to the challenges ahead in the SEC. Tim, his staff and our students are a tremendous reflection of the core values of the University of Missouri.”

“I am appreciative to Mike and Tim for providing this opportunity to lead the Mizzou Baseball Program into the exciting challenges that lie ahead in the SEC,” Jamieson said in a statement provided by Mizzou athletics. “I am very proud to be associated with the University of Missouri and of what the baseball program has been able to accomplish on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. I look forward to continuing my coaching career at a place that cares deeply about winning the right way.”
