In a shocking move, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have fired baseball coach Mike Anderson.

The Cornhuskers were 30-25 this season, but were only 9-17 in the Big 12 Conference.

Anderson was very succesful, with an overall record of 337-196-2 in nine years with Nebraska. The Cornhuskers won two Big 12 titles and appeared in the 2005 College World Series under Anderson.

Missouri lures Haith from Miami to lead basketball program

When head basketball coach Mike Anderson left Missouri to coach in the Southeastern Conference at Arkansas, the Tigers athletic administration tried to lure Purdue coach Matt Painter, but he stayed put and signed a lucrative contract extension.

Missouri turned their attention to Frank Haith of the University of Miami Hurricanes and he accepted the offer to be the head coach. Haith is familiar with the Big 12 Conference.

Haith spent three years as an assistant at both Texas and Texas A&M and also was a Wake Forest assistant before leaving to coach at Miami in 2004 for his first head coaching position.

Anderson moves from Missouri to take Arkansas job

Mike Anderson is returning home to Arkansas to become the new men’s basketball coach.

Anderson leaves the Missouri Tigers program that he revived five years ago to return to the school where he was an assistant to Nolan Richardson for 17 seasons. He takes the place of John Pelphrey, who was fired 11 days ago on March 13.

Anderson, who also revived the basketball program at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, was 111-57 at Missouri, including an appearance in the Elite Eight in 2009. The Tigers were 23-11 this year, losing to Cincinnati in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Anderson assured Missouri fans that he was going to stay put just six days earlier when rumors surfaced that he was the favorite to take the Razorbacks job.

Since the popular Nolan Richardson left in 2002, Stan Heath and John Pelphrey have not made Arkansas fans have with their double-digit losses in the Southeastern Conference.
