Talk of Anderson going to Arkansas bubbling about

March 21st, 2011 by Bob Holt, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in News

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The search for Arkansas' next basketball coach officially enters its second week today, with no announcement from the university, but plenty of Internet chatter.

CBSSports.com's Gary Parrish, citing a source close to the Arkansas program, reported late Saturday night that Missouri Coach Mike Anderson was "close to reaching an agreement in principle" to take the Razorbacks' job, but added a deal had not been finalized.

Before the CBSSports.com report, there was a Twitter post by Chris Lincoln of Tulsa television station KTUL Saturday night. It said: "Reports out of Arkansas say Mizzou coach Mike Anderson to be introduced [Sunday] in Fayetteville as Razorbacks new head basketball coach," and it sparked more speculation.

No Arkansas media outlets had reported Sunday that Anderson was about to be hired, nor could any sources confirm to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on Sunday that Anderson will be hired at Arkansas.
