Kim Anderson stepped down from his position as Missouri's head men's basketball coach on Sunday, multiple sources told Scout.

Anderson, 61, lasted just three years as the head coach of the Tigers, who never won more than 10 games in a season. Anderson will coach Missouri in the SEC tournament.

The Tigers finished the regular season 7-23. Anderson finished with a record of 26-67 and 8-46 in the SEC as the Tigers head coach. Missouri never won a road game during the Anderson era.

Anderson and his staff inherited NCAA violations and were docked two scholarships and two official visits each year. There is currently an ongoing investigation of academic fraud that includes multiple sports, including basketball. 

Prior to Missouri, Anderson spent 12 seasons as the head coach at Central Missouri, a D-II school.

Anderson played at Missouri from 1973-1977.
