Along with Isiaih Mosley’s announcement to not return next season (a good first post by our new Rock M writer Quentin Corpuel, by the way) the Mizzou Basketball team made some more news on Wednesday.

The program officially announced the hiring of Matt Lottich as a special assistant to the head coach. The news was first reported by Watch Stadium’s Jeff Goodman on Monday:

Lottich spent seven seasons as Valparaiso’s head coach and led them to a Horizon League Regular Season Championship (24-9 overall record) in his first season. In the 2019-2020 season, he led Valpo to the Missouri Valley Tournament Championship game — becoming the first MVC team ever to play in the conference tourney’s first round and reach the title game.

The basketball team wasn’t the only program to announce a coaching staff addition on Wednesday — as Mizzou Football announced that they have added the assistant coach title to cornerbacks coach Al Pogue. That title was previously held by Marcus Johnson — who is now at Purdue.
