Mike Anderson is out at the University of Arkansas.
Multiple sources have now confirmed what HawgSports.com reported earlier today that Anderson is out as the coach at Arkansas. A release is expected to be out soon. There has been a lot of discussion regarding the job security of the former Arkansas coach following an 18-16 season.

He was/is a good and competent SEC coach.

Mike Anderson is a good head coach and he wont be unemployed for very long

I don’t think he’s terrible. He was consistently mediocre to above average but nothing more or less than that. Never had a season like Vandy just had but also never had a season like LSU or you guys had. His downfall was his inability to do anything in the tournament, although he suffered from some bad calls late against North Carolina in 2017 in a game Arkansas should have probably won.

It looked like he was a perfect fit based on his time under Nolan and especially after taking Missouri to the elite 8.

I remember there were a lot of people here who wanted him when he was at UAB instead of Pearl.

Arkansas could hire UAB head coach Robert Ehsan as their next men's head basketball coach

Hogville.nets Top Five:

1. Beard
Ain't leaving Tech for Arkansas. Dropped UNLV after a warm cup of coffee to return home. Could take the Texas job if/when Shaka gets the axe.

2. Buzz
Gonna be an Aggie.

3.Marshall
Nope...Koch Bros.

4.Sampson
Not if Houston beats Kentucky...see Koch Brothers Tilman Fertitta - Wikipedia

5.Prohn
Nope... Extension

An intriguing name I did see over there was Thad Mata. It would depend on his health issues, though.

He would be a good hire for LSU to help clean up their image. Outstanding person that has raised a quality family and can also coach some hoops.

Speaking of Shaka, when exactly is he going to get the axe? He has to have worn out his welcome at Texas, no? That dude has made a lot of hay out of that Final Four appearance 8 years ago.

About that extension, the coach from Buffalo just signed a five yer extension 3 weeks ago. Now he's the head coach at Bama.

They may not come but I could counter Koch and Fertitta with Walmart, Tyson, Jerry Jones, etc. Arkansas doesn't hurt for money.

It's funny to see Houston fans keep bragging about how nice their basketball practice facility is when ours is less than 5 years old and 13,000 square feet bigger lol.

Fertitta is a basketball junkie. He enjoys the game so much he bought the Houston Rockets. Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys to make money and Fertitta bought the Rockets to win Championships.

I've heard it will be the second he is eliminated from the NIT.

I'm hoping he wins the damned thing 😂.

If they take him and give us Mike Anderson back I'll take that trade in a second! It was a great era in UAB Bball under him; second only to the Bartow (Gene; not Murray) years.
I liked Gene allot but he broke my heart when he took Larry Spicer to UAB. Larry was the third of three SWC FrOY that Carrol Dawson got for my Bears out of Memphis before he joined the Rockets staff to coach the big men.
