Flight leaving Warrensburg for Columbia as search continues for MU coach

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - ABC 17 News has confirmed a flight is scheduled from Warrensburg to Columbia Regional Airport Monday afternoon, at the same time the University of Missouri board of curators meet behind closed doors.

According to FlightAware, the plane leaves Warrensburg at 12:30 p.m. Monday, arriving just after 1 p.m. Former Tiger player and assistant coach Kim Anderson is currently the head coach at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. Anderson is the only confirmed candidate for the job so far.

The curators' agenda doesn't list any meeting topic but instead notes that the nine-member board plans to immediately go into a closed-door discussion. Such executive sessions are allowed in limited circumstances under state law, including for personnel moves. The university's Board of Curators would have to approve a new coach's contract.

Tigers coach Frank Haith officially left 10 days ago to coach Tulsa. Haith spent three years in Columbia, leading the team to two NCAA Tournament appearances but also consecutive early exits.
