Keith Kim Anderson (born May 12, 1955) is an American basketball coach and current head coach for the Pittsburg State Gorillas.[1] Anderson previously served as the men's basketball head coach of the Missouri Tigers. He led the Central Missouri Mules to back-to-back MIAA championships and three appearances in the NCAA Division II Final Four in 2007, 2009 and winning the championship in 2014. He led the Mules to the NCAA Men's Division II Basketball Championship in 2014 by defeating West Liberty 84–77.[2] He played collegiately for the University of Missouri.

Born in Sedalia, Missouri, he was selected by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2nd round (28th pick overall) of the 1977 NBA Draft and by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 7th round (146th pick overall) of the 1978 NBA Draft.

He played for the Trail Blazers (1978–79) in the NBA for 21 games.[3]

He also was a court coach for Team USA during the Pan American Games Team Trials.

On April 28, 2014 it was announced that he would take over the job vacated by Frank Haith at the University of Missouri, his alma mater.[4]

After three seasons of finishing in last place in the Southeastern Conference, Missouri asked him to step down on March 5, 2017.[5]

On March 24, 2017, Anderson was announced as the Pittsburg State men's basketball coach, returning to the MIAA.[6]
