Missouri Tigers basketball coach Frank Haith has quite a job on his hands as he prepares for his second season on the bench in Columbia.
Last year's senior-laden squad notched a school record 30 victories, but Haith's Tigers were bounced in the second round of the NCAA Tournament by Norfolk State in what may be one of the biggest upsets in March Madness history.
Haith must try and rebuild after the devastating loss, and, unfortunately, players like Marcus Denmon and Kim English are not around to help.
