Any coach that has experience recruiting understands that the best spokesmen that you can have for your program are your current players.

Missouri clearly understands that, and got a handful of players together to talk about the true family atmosphere inside of Gary Pinkel’s program in Columbia, and what Pinkel is all about as a coach, and person.

One player described it best by saying that Pinkel is “more than a coach, a friend, a father figure, he’s a guy that we can depend on for the rest of our lives.”

Overall, this is a great testament to the type of program that Gary Pinkel has developed at Missouri. More importantly, it’s told by the people that know it, and him, best.
