Missouri head baseball coach Tim Jamieson is 162 wins short of the Tigers' all-time coaching wins mark.
The three-year extension he just signed, keeping him in Columbia through the 2015 season, will help him inch closer to that mark, set by Gene McArtor from 1974-94.
Jamieson, the team's head coach since 1994, has won 30 games in a season 13 times, and the Tigers are coming off the Big 12 championship.
"I am very proud to be associated with the University of Missouri and of what the baseball program has been able to accomplish on the field, in the classroom, and in the community," Jamieson said through the Missouri athletic department's website. I look forward to continuing my coaching career at a place that cares deeply about winning the right way."
Missouri will play their first season in the SEC in 2013, arguably the best baseball conference in the nation. Locking up their head coach for the next three years will help them create stability in an effort to compete through the balance of his contract.
