FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Mike Anderson is returning to Arkansas
to become the school's basketball coach.

The school confirmed the move on Wednesday night.

Anderson leaves Missouri after five seasons to return to the
school where he was an assistant to Nolan Richardson for 17
seasons.

Several Missouri players were seen entering Mizzou Arena for an
emergency team meeting with Anderson on Wednesday night. The school scheduled a 9 p.m. news conference.

Anderson was 111-57 in five seasons at Missouri, including an
appearance in the Elite Eight in 2009. The Tigers were 23-11 this
season, losing to Cincinnati in the second round of the NCAA
tournament. He was 89-41 in four seasons at Alabama-Birmingham
before that.
