Jamieson Signs Extension Through 2015

Monday, Oct. 1-

He has coached future MLB stars like Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers and Max Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers, but now Mizzou baseball coach Tim Jamieson will arguably face his toughest challenge in the form of SEC baseball.

Fresh off a Big XII championship, Jamieson will be going against some of the best college baseball teams in the country, and Mizzou decided to show its confidence in the long-time coach. The athletic department announced he given a contract extension that will last through the 2015 season.

Jamieson, a native of Columbia, has been part of the Missouri baseball program since 1988 as an assistant coach. He was named the head coach in 1994 and has continually brought success to an already storied program.

Highlights of Jamieson’s tenure at Missouri include eclipsing the 30-win mark in one year, going to seven straight NCAA regionals and holding the nation’s No. 2 ranking at one point.

Jamieson’s most successful season came in 2007 when he was named Big XII Coach of the Year after leading the Tigers to a 42-18 record.

Entering this year, Jamieson’s 19th, he will look to bring more accomplishments to Missouri in what will be the school’s first year in the SEC. The man many regard as the best coach in Mizzou baseball history hopes to continue bringing his winning ways to the Tigers for years to come.
