Mike Anderson Set to Leave Missouri for Arkansas

CBS Sports has the 411: “Missouri coach Mike Anderson is close to reaching an agreement in principle to become Arkansas‘ men’s basketball coach, but a deal has not been finalized and no formal introduction is planned for Sunday, a source close to the Arkansas program told CBSSports.com late Saturday… [Anderson's] Tigers lost to Cincinnati in the Round of 64 on Thursday. Arkansas is looking for a coach because it fired John Pelphrey last Sunday. Pelphrey made one NCAA tournament in four years.”

    Deal not finalized and no formal introduction planned… what a scoop (I hope). A story before the story officially happens

    is arkansas a better job than missouri? seems like a lateral move.

    Don’t really see the sense in this.

    He has roots in Arkansas. I think he was an assistant there under Nolan Richardson for years. So even though it’s a lateral move it may suit him better

    Maybe journalists now will stop using Twitter as a “source.” Sorry to say, but journalists need to start doing a little more leg work, instead of throwing out garbage.

    I am a Razorback fan, Mike belongs in Ar., He
    and Nolan made Ar. a basketball powerhouse with
    thier recuriting and 40 mins. of pressure defence. It all happened in Ar., and in 2 yrs.
    with Mike, Ar. will be in the Final 4 again,
    this is a matter of fact. Mike, Please come home.

    Don’t do it……What the heck is wrong with you Mike. Do you believe the rednecks that ran Nolan out of town are gone. Hell that state wants Mike Huckabee to be president.
