More Mike Anderson Talk

The Mike-Anderson-to-Arkansas talk continued yesterday, when Tulsa World sports writer Jimmie Tramel posted on his blog that Anderson may be named the Razorbacks' next head coach at the start of the upcoming week. "A source, citing information from multiple individuals, told the Tulsa World on Friday that Anderson could be introduced as Pelphrey’s successor as soon as Monday," Tramel wrote. "A separate source was less certain, indicating that the hire was a possibility, but not a done deal."

Also, according to Matt Jones of WholeHogSports.com, Oklahoma City sportscaster Dean Blevins tweeted last night that Arkansas would hire Anderson early next week. Blevins cited "a solid source."

And for what it's worth, former Razorback and current Atlanta Hawk star Joe Johnson endorsed an Anderson hire, telling the Atlanta Journal Constitution: "He was an assistant coach when I was at Arkansas. I would love to see him get that head job and get the program back where it needs to be." We're feverishly trying to track down Mario Credit to get his take on the coaching hire; we'll be sure to pass along his views as soon as we get 'em.

Meanwhile, another rumored target of Jeff Long, Buzz Willliams, coached his Marquette squad to an impressive victory last night over Xavier, so any contact with the shy, retiring thirtysomething will have to wait for at least another couple of days.
