Missouri's Pinkel to resign at end of season, cites health (The Associated Press)


Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel abruptly announced Friday he would resign at the end of the season for health reasons, days after he kept the team united when players went on strike because of racial tensions on campus. The stunning move comes after a tumultuous week on the Columbia, Missouri, campus that began when players tweeted they would boycott Saturday's game against BYU unless the university system president resigned. Pinkel and athletic director Mack Rhoades, who is in his first year leading the Missouri athletic department, are discussing a role that would keep Pinkel associated with Tigers athletics after he is done coaching.
