Gary Pinkel expects entire Missouri football staff back in 2013

Jeff Blake-US PRESSWIRE

Missouri Tigers coach Gary Pinkel says he'll stick with his current staff and hope for better success next season.

Don't expect widespread changes with the Missouri Tigers coaching staff. Head coach Gary Pinkel has said he expects the entire staff back for the 2013 football season, according to a tweet by Rivals Missouri writer Gabe DeArmond.

Failing to gain bowl eligibility in its first season in the SEC has to be considered a disappointment for fans of the Missouri program. The Tigers (5-7, 2-6 SEC), only finished above Kentucky and Tennessee in the SEC East, but Pinkel doesn't think that disappointment will lead to changing coaches.

The Tigers, whose season ended with two straight losses to Syracuse and Texas A&M, were disappointing on both sides of the ball. They rank 89th in rushing offense, 75th in passing offense, 49th in rushing defense and 68th in passing defense. Ranking 96th overall in total offense was especially disappointing for a team coming from the high-powered Big 12 to the SEC.

Defensive coordinator Dave Steckel and offensive coordinator David Yost are also both assistant head coaches.
