Sterk said the program has the resources needed to compete at the highest level going forward.

"We strive to achieve excellence, and we expect to compete for Southeastern Conference titles, consistently play in the postseason and represent Mizzou the right way on and off the field," Sterk said.

"A national search is underway."
