(Missouri Football App) – Missouri Athletic Director Mike Alden says Gary Pinkel will return next year as head coach of the Tigers, according to the Columbia Daily Tribune.
According to the article, Alden said he had no doubt Pinkel will return for a 13th season.
Alden told the Daily Tribune’s Dave Matter he and Pinkel have talked since Saturday’s 59-29 drubbing by Texas A&M, but were waiting before having a formal postseason evaluation.
The report said Alden will not make suggestions on changes to Pinkel’s coaching staff.
Pinkel, 90-61 since taking over the Missouri football program in 2001, was scheduled to have a press conference at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday to reflect on this past season and look forward to 2013.
