COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- New Missouri coach Frank Haith has added Ernie Nestor as his newest assistant.

Nestor spent five years as head coach at George Mason and six years at Elon and has worked as an assistant at James Madison, Wake Forest, California and South Carolina in his 40-year career.

Haith has also lured assistant coach Tim Fuller to Missouri from Louisville.

Both of the new hires are familiar faces for Haith. Fuller worked at Miami under Haith and played at Wake Forest, where Haith was previously an assistant. Fuller was also a Nestor assistant at Elon.

Missouri still has two coaching vacancies after former coach Mike Anderson took his entire staff to Arkansas.
