      New Missouri coach Kim Anderson gets 'dream job'

      No sales pitch was necessary for Kim Anderson. The new Missouri coach says this is his dream job. The 58-year-old Anderson welled up a few times and paused to collect himself at his introductory news conference Tuesday, a day after the school hired him to replace Frank Haith. Athletic director Mike Alden said Anderson got a five-year contract with the total package worth more than $2 million per year.

      He said he got the right man for the job. Anderson was a star player at Missouri in the 1970s and then a long-time key aide to Norm Stewart.

      He's interviewed for the job before and this time got the school's attention by winning a Division II title at Central Missouri this past season.
