Jamieson stays at Mizzou, signs new three-year deal

Tim Jamieson will continue his reign as longest-tenured coach at Mizzou. Jamieson, who completed his 21st season with the Tigers, signed a new three-year deal to stay with Missouri, the school announced Wednesday.

Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed. But the school’s announcement said Jamieson’s base salary will remain the same. However, the program will receive more funds, presumably for facility upgrades, travel budgets and assistant coaches salaries. According to, Jamieson’s base salary was $238,000 in 2013, the lowest salary in the SEC.

Below are statements from Mizzou athletic director Mack Rhoades and Tim Jamieson:

Mack Rhoades: “We are pleased Tim will continue to lead our program. This year’s team made encouraging progress and we look forward to moving the program forward with the current roster of talented, young student-athletes in addition to the highly-regarded young men joining our program next year. We are committed to investing in our program and student-athletes in order to increase our competitiveness in the premier baseball conference in the country. Coach Jamieson led our program to high levels of success in the past and we anticipate the same in the future. Tim manages his program with great integrity and represents Mizzou in a first-class manner.”

Tim Jamieson: “First, I want to express my gratitude to Mack and the rest of our administration for having confidence in my staff and I as we continue to improve our program alongside the best in the nation in the SEC. We are coming off of a year that is more reflective of the success we saw throughout our tenure in the Big 12 and we will continue to get better as we take on the challenges of competing in the SEC. The commitment Mack and the administration have made to our program is reflected in the increase in our budget and I am beyond grateful to them for helping give us the resources we need to be even more successful in the SEC.”

The Tigers finished with a 30-28 record (15-15 in SEC play). This is the first 30-win season for the Tigers since 2010. According to, the Tigers had the fourth-strongest schedule in the nation in 2015. MU was on the cusp of clinching an NCAA tournament bid, but lost 13 of its last 17 games to end the season.

Mizzou baseball was picked to finish last in the SEC in 2015.

The Tigers have a young nucleus coming back, including Freshman All-American pitcher Tanner Houck. Trey Harris, Brett Bond and Shane Benes all started at one point in the season, providing improved offensive production from Missouri’s disastrous 20-33 season in 2014.

Tim Jamieson’s all-time record as Mizzou baseball coach is 672-535-2.
