Report: Haith leaving Missouri, takes over at Tulsa

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Missouri's Frank Haith has reached an agreement in principle to replace Danny Manning as Tulsa's next head coach, CBSSports.com is reporting.

A formal announcment is expected soon.

CBSSports.com first reported Haith's involvement with Tulsa earlier Thursday.

"Frank is looking for a way out of Missouri," one source said. "This might be it."

Haith just finished his third season at Missouri by missing the NCAA Tournament with a team talented enough to make it, and Mizzou fans have undeniably turned on him because of underachieving on the court and problems off of the court -- most recently the arrest and dismissal of Louisville transfer Zach Price. Sources told CBSSports.com that Tulsa is willing to pay in excess of $1 million for Haith, and that he's seriously considering going because he knows one more bad season at Missouri could be his last.
