Or so it would appear.
After a weekend in which seemingly every out-of-state media member tweeted that Sexton's client Mike Anderson was due to be named the new coach of the Razorbacks any second now, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that Missouri is putting the final touches on a raise and contract extension for the former Arkansas assistant (hat tip to Chris Bahn for the link).
And speaking of Twitter ... Hawgs Illustrated's Dudley Dawson just tweeted the following: "Not so sure there won't be one more twist, but sure looks like Mike is staying at Missouri."
I can't say I'm terribly disappointed. I couldn't help but feel that Anderson's return to Fayetteville would mark a return to the Nolan era - the latter Nolan era, when the Hogs usually lost more than 10 games in a season, recorded a .500 record in the conference and got bounced during the NCAA Tournament's opening weekend. Better than the last decade for sure, but not terribly exciting in the long run.
In the meantime, I hear Houston Nutt's a candidate for the Razorback vacancy.
