Thought I'd start a new one of these. The old one is infected with the Haith Aids plus it had the wrong number of astericks.

One more on Fulford:

Missouri hires Andrew Wiggins' high school coach to overhaul recruiting strategy

By James Pennington

Kim Anderson hired a risky third assistant in Rob Fulford. He could pay big dividends for the Tigers.

Frank Haith's three-year tenure as the Missouri Tigers' coach came and went, and his brazen strategy of relying heavily on Division I transfers resulted in zero NCAA Tournament wins and a preemptive decision to leave for Tulsa before his athletics director could make the move for him. Haith didn't find success in building a program on transfers -- certainly not in the way Fred Hoiberg and Iowa State did -- and, though indirectly, it forced his hand to leave for a lesser program.

New Missouri coach Kim Anderson seems to already be more committed to traditional high school recruiting than Haith ever was, which Anderson proved Monday when he announced Rob Fulford would join his staff as an assistant coach. Fulford was the coach at Huntington Prep, an upstart prep school founded in 2009 that Fulford had coached since then. Huntington Prep had its first first-round draft pick when Gorgui Dieng went to the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Andrew Wiggins will become the second on Thursday.

In three signing classes, Haith brought in seven Division I transfers (two of which sat out last year and will debut for Missouri under Anderson), two junior college transfers and eight high school players. Two of those high schoolers transferred away after one season. Last season freshman power forward Johnathan Williams and sophomore Ryan Rosburg were the first high school recruits under Haith to play more than 37 percent of the team's available minutes. It's not that Haith fixed cracks in the foundation with transfers; the foundation was built with them. Whether Haith did not have the connections and wherewithal to pull in top high school recruits or simply chose to build his program differently is irrelevant. It didn't work.

Fulford's hire is a step in, if nothing else, a different direction. Fulford's credentials as a coach aside -- he's lost 17 games as a prep school head coach in the past five years -- the hire is primarily about making inroads in recruiting and giving Missouri a recognizable, reputable face on the AAU circuit. Top 2016 recruit Thon Maker was expected to make an unofficial visit to Missouri on Tuesday, according to Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star.

Tuesday was Fulford's second official day on the job, and his presence in the high school and AAU circuit over the past several years means the top high school recruit in two years' time walked into the basketball offices in Columbia and saw one more welcoming face.

Hiring Fulford would also seem to put the Tigers in play for any number of prospects from Huntington Prep, including two players in 247Sports.com's top 32 for the Class of 2015: No. 13 Thomas Bryant and No. 32 Montaque Gill-Caesar.

It isn't necessarily a safe hire for Anderson, who could have justified hiring a longtime Division I assistant since he and one of his assistants are both making the transition from Division II Central Missouri.

Fulford's only experience as a college assistant coach was at Mountain State University, an NAIA school, from 1997 to 2000. But safety in decisions isn't a guarantee, either. Haith relied on experience over talent, or perhaps the forecast of talent, in his three years in Missouri. That experiment failed, and Anderson is already differentiating himself from his predecessor to ensure he's not similarly felled.

Quote:
Two months into it, Kim Anderson still marvels at this: He’s the head coach of the University of Missouri’s men’s basketball team.

This was the one thing he forever had wanted. It also was the one thing he had reconciled, or at least compartmentalized, that he’d never have.

The sudden realization of a lifelong dream that you’d actually surrendered would be profound in anyone’s life. It’s certainly so with Anderson, who turned 59 a few weeks after getting the job.

“‘Life-long,’” he said, considering the literalness of the term in this case and smiling as he sat in Mizzou Arena.

With that has come a whirlwind tour of the state, from Cape Girardeau to Mendon, from St. Louis to Kansas City and too many outposts to count in-between … and so many that Anderson believes he may have shaken hands with all but a handful of people in Missouri.

All of which is a terrific springboard for Anderson, who got a standing ovation from the crowd of about 150 at the Tiger Club at the Westport Flea Market last week.

But Anderson knows all of this is attached to the fleeting grace period of a honeymoon in his first season after whisking Division II Central Missouri to the national title.

But Anderson knows all of this is attached to the fleeting grace period of a honeymoon in his first season after whisking Division II Central Missouri to the national title.


Somewhere down the road looms an expiration date.

“It’s a special feeling,” he said, “but I think it’s probably about time I get over the special feelings and get to work.”

In fact, Anderson scarcely has stopped working as he takes on what athletic director Mike Alden suggested was a “CEO” role at his alma mater, where the son of Sedalia starred on the court and later was an assistant coach.

He’s cobbled together his staff, re-engaged relationships around the state, recruited new players, re-recruited current players and re-wooed the signees of Frank Haith.

Yet nothing this summer has been more important than Anderson connecting with, and starting to put an imprint on, his players.

It’s a young, impressionable group teeming with newcomers and featuring only one player (junior Ryan Rosburg) who’s been at Mizzou more than a year.

That’s how he really starts building from the “ground up,” as Anderson put it, intending no slight to predecessor Frank Haith, who was 76-28 at MU but left a program in the flux of constant roster turnover.

So Anderson understands that in some ways it’s an entirely new world for players, including a number who hadn’t signed up to play for him.

“I walk in here … and they don’t know me, and I don’t know them,” he said.

To start to alleviate that, Anderson meets with the team for breakfast every morning at 8 — which means 7:45, Rosburg said, noting Anderson’s emphasis on “Tiger time” being 15 minutes early.

And then there’s the real torture.

“I don’t get to use my cell phone, and they don’t get to use their cell phone,” he said. “They don’t get to wear hats, I don’t get to wear a hat. Not that I wear a hat a lot.

“So for the 15-30 minutes, they’ve got to talk to each other, or they’ve got to talk to me.”

Then for two hours a week over the last few weeks, they have to listen to Anderson and his staff on the court.

A hint on what they’re hearing: Anderson estimates they’ve worked on offense for something like “two minutes.” Said Rosburg, “We have yet to learn, like, any offensive plays.”

That’s because the most fundamental message is that this all must and will start with an attitude and an atmosphere predicated on defense.

That’s what Anderson was getting at when he hollered at them recently to be more “mean and aggressive,” and tells them they’ll never hear a cross word from him if they mess up going hard, and exhorted them through yet … another … defensive drill.

“You can do it!” he yelled. “Nobody ever made you do it. I’m going to make you do it.”

To wit, Rosburg told of a 4-on-4 drill in which the ball is left in the lane and one team is supposed to do all it can to get to the ball; the other is supposed to do all it can to deny them the ball.

“They’re basically football drills,” Rosburg said. “There’s a lot of pushing and shoving and diving all over the place. It’s just that mentality of going as hard as you can at all times.”

This isn’t to say his notions are any better or worse than what Haith set out to do, Anderson stressed repeatedly (he said he’d be glad to have Haith’s record after three years).

But the emphasis is entirely different as he seeks to put together a program, not just a team.

Just as it took Anderson a long time to get here, he’s building for the long haul and is steeped in this notion: It’s about setting a tone of intensity that says, “This is who we are and how we play and what we stand for.”

That’s a quality that was entwined with Missouri basketball under Anderson’s mentor, Norm Stewart, but a quality that anyone who watched MU the last few seasons might say has been missing.

In fact, Anderson flinched during the first day of the defensive-oriented drills and thought, “Oh, my goodness.”

“Then, by the third day, they were 100 times better,” he said. “So they’re learners. They’re trying, and that’s all I can ask them to do …

“The technique’s still a long way from being there, but the effort is better, and that’s the first key thing.”

Especially if the honeymoon phase is going to transition into a flourishing long-term relationship everyone hopes it will be.

“There’s going to be some rough moments” with such a young team, Anderson said. “But our stamp on this is to come out and play with an intensity level and aggressiveness and play hard. And if we do that, I think the fans will like that. I think they’ll appreciate that.”

Enough so, he hopes, that a year from now he’ll still be getting standing ovations as he makes the rounds.

And not because of sentimentality but because something has started to take in a job he considers nothing less than a sacred trust.
