St. John’s expected to hire Mike Anderson as new coach
By ADAM ZAGORIA
After a topsy turvy coaching search, St. John’s has finally found its man.
The school is expected to name former Arkansas, Missouri and UAB coach Mike Anderson its new coach. An official announcement is expected Friday. Anderson will replace Chris Mullin, who parted ways with the team April 9.
“All signs are pointing towards that,” one source close to the team said Thursday night.
Anderson, 59, is 369-200 (.649) in his career with nine NCAA Tournament appearances. He was fired by Arkansas last month after posting an 18-16 campaign and leading the Razorbacks to the NIT. Anderson led Missouri to the Elite Eight in 2009.
