It took more than a month, but Missouri’s new men’s basketball coach, Kim Anderson, signed his contract last week and the university released the details Friday afternoon.

Anderson, 59, was hired April 28 in a special session of the University of Missouri System Board of Curators, but his contract wasn’t signed until June 3.

“We had a lot of work to be done following the press conference, and this (contract) process was pushed to the back burner because, quite frankly, it wasn’t the most pressing issue for our program as a whole,” Anderson said in a written statement accompanying the contract release. “I know a lot of folks worked to get this process complete, and I want to thank them for their efforts.”

Anderson’s contract is for five years, through April 30, 2019, and calls for a $300,000 annual base salary and a total of $1.1 million in guaranteed pay in the first year of the contract.

“We are excited about the future of our men’s basketball program at Mizzou,” athletic director Mike Alden said in the release. “Kim is doing a terrific job already in his first two months with the Tigers.”

Beyond his base salary, Anderson will receive $173,000 this season in lieu of a contract with an athletic shoe or apparel company, $173,000 for television appearances, $173,000 for radio duties and $173,000 for appearances with alumni groups and at booster functions.
