The Arkansas Razorbacks have fired veteran head coach Mike Anderson after holding that job since 2011. The school quickly made the announcement after several reports emerged on Twitter.
During his time with the school, Anderson led the Razorbacks to three trips to the NCAA Tournament, but never advanced beyond the Round of 32.
He actually had a lot more success with his previous two jobs, the Missouri Tigers and UAB. Between the two programs, from 2002-2011, Anderson went to six Big Dances, reaching the both the Elite Eight and Sweet 16 one time a piece.
However, with the Arkansas Razorbacks failing to make the NCAA Tournament this season, coupled with the rest of the SEC improving rather quickly, it appears the university decided it was time to try to upgrade from Mike Anderson.
Naturally, everyone will now have to wonder if they actually can. It is clear, however, that this year’s coaching carousel is moving quickly, especially in the SEC.
