Missouri Coach Gary Pinkel Resigns due to health problems
Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel is resigning from the team due to health problems. Pinkel has non-Hodgkin lymphoma but will coach for the rest of this season unless a new coach is hired before then. Missouri has been in the news of late for racial tension that led to the school president resigning.
Pinkel is 63 years old and is the winningest coach in school history with a 117-71 record over 15 seasons. His team has won the past two SEC East titles. Now Missouri will be in the hunt for a new coach who has Pinkel’s big shoes to fill the racial situation to deal with.
