COLUMBIA, Mo. -- 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.

Anderson was a star player at Missouri in the 1970s and then a longtime 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.
