They play as members of the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference. They are led by fourth-year head coach Barry Odom.

On January 31, 2019, the Tigers received a postseason ban from the NCAA for the 2019 season.

NCAA Investigation[edit]

On January 31, 2019, the NCAA gave the Tigers a postseason ban for the 2019 season. The Tigers' baseball and softball teams were also declared ineligible for postseason play. The NCAA found that a former University of Missouri tutor violated NCAA bylaws by completing coursework for 12 student athletes in football, baseball, and softball.[1] The tutor or any of the athletes involved in the investigation were not named in the NCAA's report. The tutor received a 10-year show-cause for her involvement in the penalties. The NCAA issued the following penalties:[2]

  • 3 years of probation.
  • a 10-year show-cause order for the former tutor. During that period, any NCAA member school employing the tutor must restrict her from any athletically related duties.
  • a 2018-19 postseason ban for the baseball and softball programs.
  • a 2019-20 postseason ban for the football program.
  • a vacation of records in which football, baseball and, softball student-athletes competed while ineligible. The university must provide a written report containing the matches impacted to the NCAA media coordination and statistics staff within 45 days of the public decision release.
  • a 5 percent reduction in the amount of scholarships in each of the football, baseball, and softball programs during the 2019-20 academic year.
  • Recruiting restrictions for each of the football, baseball, and softball programs during the 2019-20 academic year, including: a 7-week ban on unofficial visits, a 12.5 percent reduction in official visits, a 7-week ban on recruiting communications, a 7-week ban on all off-campus recruiting contacts and evaluations, a 12.5 percent reduction in recruiting-person or evaluation days.
  • a disassociation of the tutor.
  • a fine of $5,000 plus 1 percent of each of the football, baseball, and softball budgets.
