Missouri men's basketball Coach Mike Anderson is heading to Arkansas, according to a report from CBSSPORTS.com posted Saturday night.
The report cites a tweet from Chris Lincoln, Sports Director at KTUL-TV in Tulsa.
“Reports out of Arkansas say Mizzou coach Mike Anderson to be introduced tomorrow in Fayetteville as Razorbacks new head basketball coach,” Lincoln tweeted Saturday.
MU Athletics Department officials, including spokesman Chad Moller, were unavailable for comment.
Rumors of a potential move to Arkansas have surrounded Anderson throughout the postseason, though the coach shot down rumors at a postgame press conference following the second round loss in the NCAA Tournament.
“That’s a rumor, and I thought I dealt with that already,” Anderson said in response to questioning about a possible move to Arkansas. “I’m excited about what’s taking place at Missouri and I plan on being at Missouri. That’s the bottom line.”
Anderson spent 17 seasons as an assistant for the Razorback basketball program before coaching at the University of Alabama and eventually Missouri.
