It was a crazy day in for SEC Basketball
We didn’t expect much movement in the coaching ranks within the SEC, but nothing is ever normal in this league.
Mike Anderson is out at Arkansas. The SEC now has openings at Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Alabama, Texas A&M — and, probably, eventually, LSU. https://t.co/IFAXr5OiWb— Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) March 26, 2019
Mike Anderson was fired yesterday, in a fairly surprising move. Leaving opening at Alabama, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Arkansas and certainly LSU. I know many Mizzou fans still hold hostilities towards CMA, but I’ll always think of him well. He was the coach that returned Mizzou to the Elite 8 with a really fun team, but more than that he was the coach at Mizzou when I was coaching at Webster and I got to know him and his staff and they were all terrific guys. I’m sad to see them lose their jobs.
It’s also surprising because they’d made the NCAA tournament just last year, and had a team stocked with freshmen and overachieved this year. Yeah they had Daniel Gafford, but Gafford is a rim running post who doesn’t command a ton of possessions. And still the Hogs won more games than I expected and got to the NIT. 18 wins and postseason play in four of the past five seasons with three NCAA trips is a solid record. It’s not 1994 anymore and the Arkansas job is tougher than it used to be.
