NEW ORLEANS -- Frank Haith has capped his first season at Missouri by being selected The Associated Press' Coach of the Year.

Haith took over the Tigers after seven years at Miami. He was presented the award Friday after receiving 21 votes from the 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.

Missouri won 30 games and the Big 12 tournament and was ranked in the AP poll the entire season, reaching second for one week and third in the final poll.

The Tigers were a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament but were knocked out in the first round by Norfolk State. The voting was done before the NCAA tournament.

Haith is still dealing with aftermath of an NCAA investigation into the program at Miami.

John Calipari of Kentucky and Tom Izzo of Michigan State tied for second with 10 votes each.

Interesting choice seeing as he didn't win the conference, couldn't get past the first round of the tournament, he came into a situation that all ready had good upperclassman.

100% on board with this. Low expectations...plus everyone thinking he was an awful hire.

Props to him. Well-deserved.
