COLUMBIA - Missouri basketball coach Kim Anderson completed his coaching staff on Monday with the hiring of former Huntington Prep head coach Rob Fulford. Fulford spent five seasons in Huntington, West Virginia where his teams earned a combined record of 138-17 during his career.

Huntington Prep finished No. 3 nationally last season and qualified for the Dick's Sporting Goods High School National Tournament after earning a record of 28-4. His 2012-13 team was ranked No. 1 in the country by USA Today to open the season.

Anderson released a statement saying, "I couldn't be more excited to welcome Rob to the Mizzou family. Rob is obviously an outstanding coach and he won at an incredible level at Huntington Prep. He is well-respected by his peers and will be a great asset to our program. One of Rob's biggest strengths is his ability to build relationships with his young men. He gets the most out of his players because of those strong relationships and that's exactly what we were looking for as we went about completing our staff."

"I want to thank Coach Anderson, Mike Alden and University administration for this incredible opportunity. I wasn't looking to leave Huntington Prep but after speaking with Coach Anderson and seeing his vision for the program, this opportunity was too good to pass up and I'm excited to be a Missouri Tiger," Fulford said.

After graduating from Marshall University in 1997, Fulford began his coaching career as an assistant coach at Mountain State University from 1997-2000. He then became the head coach at Mountain State Academy from 2006-09 before moving to Huntington Prep.
