The 48-year-old Haith said Friday that the move came quickly. He says he was contacted Thursday and got more and more interested, particularly by the school's upcoming move to the American Athletic Conference.

Haith was 76-28 at Missouri, which plays in the SEC.

He replaces Danny Manning, who left for Wake Forest after two seasons in Tulsa.

University President Steadman Upham pointed to Haith's impressive winning record, not just at Mizzou but also in seven years before that at Miami (Fla.), as a key reason he was considered.
