Mizzou football assistant coach arrested

University of Missouri football assistant coach Vernon Hargreaves was arrested on Saturday for an out of county warrant.

According to online records, MUPD arrested the 56-year-old, and he was released after posting $1,000 bond.

MUPD spokesperson Sara Diedrich said an officer pulled Hargreaves over near the intersection of Stadium and Monk for speeding on Saturday at 5:30 a.m. The officer arrested Hargreaves after learning he had an active arrest warrant out of Miller County for failing to appear in court.

According to Diedrich, “The warrant stemmed from an original charge of no insurance and failure to register a vehicle.”

“We are aware of Vernon’s situation and are in the process of gathering additional information,” a Mizzou spokesman said. “Once we have completed that process, we will be able to offer additional comment.”

Hargreaves joined the MU football staff in December of 2017 as the inside linebackers coach. He has 34 years of collegiate coaching experience.
