Under the direction of veteran Coach Gary Pinkel, the Missouri Tigers have made four back to back bowl appearances including participating in this years Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.
Scout.com is proud to announce the hiring of James Bryant as the new full-time publisher of Inside Mizzou.com.
Bryant has spent the last four years covering collegiate athletics, three years as co-publisher of the Ole Miss Rebel Sports.Net, and the last year serving as the full-time publisher of PonyStampede.com for the Scout.com network.
"It's a great honor to be named the publisher of Inside Mizzou.com," Bryant said. "Missouri is one of the top athletic programs in the country and they deserve full time coverage."
Bryant plans on placing a big emphasis on recruiting coverage, including in depth articles from a Missouri program prospective.
