No matter the money or the number of visits or calls Oregon wants to make, Mike Anderson is staying put at Missouri. He released a statement late yesterday.
“It’s certainly flattering anytime another university notices what your program is accomplishing and when I was approached by Oregon, I decided to listen, but it was simply with my family in mind. All that quick conversation did was reaffirm that Missouri is home to us.
Mike Alden, Chancellor Deaton and President Forsee were supportive throughout this process and we plan on taking Tiger Basketball to new heights. Oregon is a great university, but Mizzou is a special place for me and my family and I’m proud to be your basketball coach here at Mizzou.”
