Q&A with Gary Pinkel
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, a day before spring practices begin, Missouri football Coach Gary Pinkel met with three reporters in his office for a 45-minute interview. In 2012, Pinkel’s 12th year at Missouri and first in the Southeastern Conference, the Tigers struggled through an injury-plagued 5-7 season. Afterward, offensive coordinator David Yost left his staff and became the receivers coach at Washington State and Pinkel promoted offensive line coach Josh Henson to offensive coordinator. The first big decision facing Pinkel and his offensive coaches is to determine who the starting quarterback will be among returning players James Franklin, Corbin Berkstresser and Maty Mauk — a battle that Pinkel calls even entering the spring. Here are excerpts of the interview.
