University of Arkansas Head Coach
Mike Anderson Speaker Profile
Mike Anderson was born December 12, 1959, in Birmingham, Alabama and is a college basketball coach, who was hired as the head men's coach at the University of Missouri on March 26, 2006.
Anderson was hired in 2006 to take over at the University of Missouri, a once-proud program that had seen scandal and progressively poorer results under Quin Snyder. Anderson's first team, a ragtag collection of transfers and raw talent, went 18-12 but missed out on post-season play after a loss to Baylor in the Big 12 Tournament. His 2007-08 campaign saw the inclusion of his nephew DeMarre Carroll, a transfer from Vanderbilt, but also was hit by scandal, as a group of players (the "Athena Five", so named for where the incident took place) were arrested for a fight in a Columbia nightclub. Weeks later, starting forward Kalen Grimes was dismissed from the team after being arrested for hitting a man with the butt of a shotgun. While all were suspended, many Mizzou supporters called into question his ability to discipline his men, both off the court and on it: the Tigers finished 16-16, crashing out of the Big 12 Tourney to Nebraska and once again missing out on post-season play.
Anderson was also one of ten finalists for the 2008-09 Henry Iba Award. The other 9 finalists were John Calipari, Memphis; Bill Self (eventual winner), Kansas; Jamie Dixon, Pittsburgh; Mike Montgomery, California; Stew Morrill, Utah State; Matt Painter, Purdue; Oliver Purnell, Clemson, and Brad Stevens, Butler.
