David Yost has resigned his position as University of Missouri assistant head football coach, after spending the past 12 seasons on Head Coach Gary Pinkel's staff at Mizzou.
Yost cited personal reasons for his decision, which is effective immediately.
The departure will end a 17-season association between Pinkel and Yost. He initially joined Pinkel's staff at Toledo in 1996 as a graduate assistant, and from 1997-2000, was Pinkel's quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator, until moving to MU in the same position.
"First off, I want to thank Coach Pinkel for an amazing 17 years," said Yost. "He has done so much for me and I'm just so grateful for the faith that he showed in me and all of the opportunities that he sent my way.
I also want to thank Mike Alden for the support he has given me personally, and to our program.
