Maty Mauk, Missouri grad...and, if his Twitter profile is accurate, soon-to-be Eastern Kentucky Colonel... https://t.co/2kiJO9KT8d— David Morrison (@DavidCMorrison) May 17, 2016
Mauk gradated from Missouri this weekend, so he'd be eligible to play this fall as a grad transfer at EKU.— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) May 17, 2016
It has been evident for a while that this was where he was headed, but this makes it that much closer to official. But congrats to him for sticking it out in Columbia and finishing his degree. I wish him the best.
Wanted: New strength guy
Matt Herring, whose hiring was celebrated as a coup two years ago because of his experience working with back-to-back national-championship teams at Florida and with the San Antonio Spurs, is being replaced as the Tigers’ strength and conditioning coach after two seasons in Columbia, the school confirmed Monday.
"Mizzou men’s basketball is moving in a new direction with its strength and conditioning program," read a statement from the school. "We thank Matt Herring for his contributions the past two seasons and wish him the best in the future."
Herring was hired to replace Todor Pandov, who left with former coach Frank Haith and accepted the same position under Haith at Tulsa.
With players expected to report for summer workouts the first week of June, Missouri is expected to make a quick hire to replace Herring. The Tigers face a crucial summer in terms of getting players in shape for an August trip to Italy and what's sure to be a pivotal season for a program coming off nine- and 10-win seasons.
