UPDATE: ESPN is now reporting that Arkansas officials will meet with Mike Anderson today and "a

contract offer and Anderson's acceptance of it appear to be a formality."

Original Story: ESPN's Andy Katz is reporting that Mike Anderson is expected to accept an offer to coach the Arkansas Razorbacks. However, Katz reports that "the situation is still fluid," and a Missouri source expects Anderson to stay.



Anderson had reportedly been negotiating a two-year extension to stay at Mizzou with a salary of $2 million.

As a Big 12 basketball fan, losing Anderson would be a huge blow for the Tigers. He led them to three appearances in the NCAA Tournament, including the Elite Eight in 2009. He's a quality coach with a fun playing style. The Razorbacks haven't been the same since Nolan Richardson was run out of Fayetteville. Anderson was an assistant under Richardson.

"Mike told me it was 50-50 since he was still negotiating," Richardson told ESPN Wednesday morning. "I'm happy for him. I support Mike and I will support him wherever he goes. He's like a son to me."
