Mike Anderson has agreed in principle to leave Missouri and become the next men's basketball coach at Arkansas, a source told on Wednesday.

An official announcement is expected soon.

Anderson was heavily involved in the Arkansas search over the weekend -- so much so that a source told late Saturday that the two sides were close to reaching an agreement. Discussions continued Monday despite a report from that stated Anderson had already decided to remain at Missouri. Everything intensified Tuesday and Wednesday, at which point Arkansas secured a commitment from Anderson -- the man who assisted Nolan Richardson for 17 seasons in Fayetteville before landing his first head coaching job at UAB.

Anderson coached Missouri for five seasons.

He made the NCAA tournament each of the past three years.

I would hope that Nolan had nothing to do with any of this.
