Named one of college basketball's Top 10 assistant coaches under the age of 40 by ESPN.com, Associate Head Coach Tim Fuller is set for his fourth season on the sidelines at Missouri and has been a key figure in Missouri's hardwood success and recruiting resurgence.
A former student-athlete at Wake Forest, Fuller has spent time coaching and teaching at each level of basketball since beginning his professional career, and has used those experiences to help attract one of the country's top incoming classes to Columbia, Mo., once again this season.
Fuller has enjoyed success on every step of the basketball ladder and as recruiting coordinator, is charged with bringing top talent to Mizzou, while also helping to mentor Missouri student-athletes on and off the basketball court.
Despite being widely considered one of college basketball's top "up-and-comers", Fuller already has 18 seasons of basketball coaching, playing, marketing and administrative experience under his belt. In his first season at Missouri he helped coach the Tigers to 30 wins and a Big 12 Championship, and was a valuable figure in helping the team rank among college basketball's leaders in winning percentage and offensive efficiency.
In 2012-13 Fuller was charged with the development of Missouri's post play and helped induce career seasons from fifth-year senior Laurence Bowers and transfer senior Alex Oriakhi. In addition, Missouri ranked among the national leaders in rebounding margin (No. 4 +8.5) and offensive efficiency and the team recorded 22 total point-rebound double-doubles, the most since the 1990-91 season.
Last season Fuller was a calming influence for the Tigers in a number of areas, serving as acting head coach and leading Missouri to a 5-0 record to start the year and then mentoring the Tigers during a coaching change that ended with the hiring of Mizzou great, Kim Anderson.
"I am excited to add Tim as the first member of our coaching staff here at Missouri and applaud how he led this program and kept Mizzou moving forward through practices and recruiting during the transition," Head Coach Kim Anderson said. "Tim has displayed incredible character and loyalty to Mizzou during the transition and demonstrated from our first meeting his commitment and passion for our student-athletes and Mizzou Basketball. I look forward to working closely with Tim as we move our program forward and am excited about the future of Tiger Basketball."
Fuller was elevated to Associate Head Coach in 2012 and since his arrival the Tigers have won 76 games and advanced to three consecutive postseason Tournaments.
"Missouri has been such a great place for us," Fuller said. "The city, family atmosphere, fan support; Mizzou and Columbia have everything you want as a coach and a father, and it's a great selling point on the recruiting trail. I am excited about what we have accomplished over the past three seasons and look forward to working with Coach Anderson as we accomplish even more."
After graduating from Wake Forest with a degree in communications in 2000, Fuller served as an intern in the Atlantic Coast Conference office and worked as a volunteer coach with Division I North Carolina A&T. Fuller secured his first full-time coaching duties at the high school level at West Forsyth High School in Clemmons, N.C., where he coached future New Orleans Hornets and LA Clippers star, Chris Paul.
Fuller broke back into the college ranks in 2002-03 as an assistant for Ernie Nestor at Elon College and was promoted to associate head coach at Elon before briefly joining Frank Haith's staff at Miami as the Director of Basketball Operations. Fuller returned to his alma mater (Wake Forest) as the Director of Basketball Operations for two seasons under Skip Prosser and joined Ed Cooley's staff at Fairfield for a season in 2006-07 as an assistant coach. Taking a hiatus from the college game, Fuller joined Nike to help promote the game of basketball at the NBA level before returning to college at Louisville in 2010.
The Woodbridge, Va., native has three children, Timothy II, Gabriel Elijah and Solomon Dior.
