first_imgGary Pinkel after big win against BYU.Gary Pinkel DanceMissouri head coach Gary Pinkel announced yesterday that he would stepping down at the end of this season due to health reasons. Whether it’s been his team’s up-and-down season, the unrest on campus, or his personal battle with lymphoma, Pinkel has faced more than his fair share of adversity this fall. So perhaps that’s why the scene following Missouri’s 20-16 win over BYU tonight was so touching. After the game, Pinkel’s players surrounded him, chanted his name, and urged him to dance. The veteran head coach obliged, and appeared to get emotional in doing so. “and the GP, GP ayyyyyyy chant has erupted” among players pic.twitter.com/vdwQ8ddega— Ashley Zavala (@ZavalaA) November 15, 2015Dance Gary Pinkel.
