Georgia targeting Mizzou’s Anderson

Mark Schlabach of espn.com is reporting that Georgia has slapped a bullseye on Mizzou’s current head coach, Mike Anderson. It’s really no surprise that teams are targeting Anderson. Applying the same philosophies of his mentor Nolan Richardson, he’s turned around Mizzou basketball. According to Schlabach Georgia is prepared to make a multi-year offer worth about $2mil per year.  Why go to Georgia? That’s the question. If I were a coach I’d be very hesitant about going there. However it appears that Georgia officials believe $2mil a season will be enough to lure Anderson back to the SEC.

Missouri is expected offer a milti-year extension to Anderson. Schlabach reported the extenstion is expected to be in the $1.3mil range.  All I’ve got say is, Mizzou up your offer to the $2mil range and get this guy re-signed before Memphis, Arizona or another school swoops in and offers this guy more money than you’ll ever pay.

I really doubt Anderson will be stay at Mizzou much longer but I really hope he does. If he does turn down the Georgia offer he just might go to Memphis. He’s already coached in Conf-USA and it’s not the Big12 but Memphis, thanks to the support of Fed-Ex, will be able to offer him some big time money. Plus he wouldn’t be too far ways from his old stomping grounds in Arkansas. If Anderson does leave, I say bring Billy Gillespie back the Big12 Mizzou.
