ESPN reports the Georgia Bulldogs have offered Missouri basketball coach Mike Anderson $2 million per season to replace fired coach Dennis Felton.

Other sources have reported that Anderson could head to Memphis next season, and The Kansas City Star reported that Missouri is prepared to offer Anderson $1.3 million a season in a contract extension. Anderson makes $850,000 a season now.

We'll have more information on the Maneater Sports Blog as soon as it's available.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, quoting Anderson's agent, reports Georgia is interested, but that no contract has been offered.
