COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri plans to introduce its new women's basketball coach at a news conference Thursday morning.

The announcement by athletics director Mike Alden is set for 10:30 a.m. at Mizzou Arena.

Cindy Stein resigned last month after 12 years. She led Missouri to three NCAA tournaments but had losing records the past three seasons.

Published reports have said that Missouri was targeting Texas Christian coach Jeff Mittie and Robin Pingeton of Illinois State.
