The University of Missouri-Columbia and Quin Snyder have reached a settlement which has resulted in Snyder resigning his duties as head coach of the men's basketball program, effective immediately. Terms of the settlement will be announced later.

"It is to his great credit that Quin Snyder is known first and foremost for his devotion to his players," said MU Chancellor Brady Deaton. "I appreciate that he has put the best interests of MU and our student-athletes first in making this decision to step down from his position. We all regret that it has been a very challenging season, but we also are grateful to Quin for his efforts over the past seven seasons," he said.
"We are pleased to have this finalized, and we feel that this course is in the best interests of all parties," said Director of Athletics Mike Alden. "Quin has given everything he's had to this University, and to the young men in his program, and we are proud of the things that he achieved. While we did not have intentions of making any potential changes until after the season was over, when presented with this scenario, both parties worked well together to bring it to a conclusion. Our focus is now on our young men and our coaches and staff, and giving them what they need to push through to the end of this season," he said.
Alden said that there is not a timetable set for a search to find Snyder's replacement.
