As the coaching world turns:
- Mike Anderson – The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says that Missouri has a big job to keep its coach. The two most interesting tidbits from this article include MU stating that they have no idea where the rumor of a $1.3 million/year offer from MU got started, and the rumblings from inside the MU athletic department that they can’t match a $2 million offer. The NY Times also discusses the in demand status of Anderson.
Chip Towers says that UGA hasn’t contacted Missouri for permission to speak with Anderson, yet. It can’t be long now.
- John Calipari – The Memphis coach is not a candidate in Athens; however, he is a candidate in Lexington. Calipari currently makes around $2.8 million a year in total compensation when you factor in annuity payments. I doubt he goes to Kentucky. However, if the Memphis job opens, they could go after Anderson. The former CUSA Coach / Tiger Slayer would be the ultimate hire for Memphis. USA Today offers a look at their suggested Top 5 candidates for the UK job.
