Kim Anderson’s time at Missouri hasn’t gone as planned so far, and things got worse as Canadian guard Montague Gill-Caesar has decided to transfer from Missouri.

When Missouri tabbed Kim Anderson to replace Frank Haith as their bench boss following the 2013-14 season, the Tigers were hoping for big thing from the Missouri alum.

However, losing their top three players entering 2014-15 didn’t spell success for the Tigers.

Anderson, who was coming off a Division II championship at Central Missouri, didn’t see much success in 2014-15. Missouri struggled to a 9 – 23 record on the season, and things went from bad to worse in the off-season.
