FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Arkansas has signed basketball coach Mike Anderson to a two-year extension through the 2021-22 season.
The extension announced Friday is the second for Anderson, who is in his seventh season with the Razorbacks and has an overall record of 142-80. His original seven-year contract was extended in 2015 through the 2019-20 season, and his new deal could keep the 58-year-old Anderson at Arkansas through his 11th season.
Anderson has led the Razorbacks to the NCAA Tournament twice in the last three seasons, and his new extension is for $2.55 million annually. Arkansas is 14-6 this season and is 24th nationally in the NCAA's RPI ratings.
Prior to becoming the head coach of the Razorbacks, Anderson coached at Missouri and Alabama-Birmingham. Before that, he was an assistant at Arkansas for 17 seasons under former coach Nolan Richardson - helping the school win the 1994 national championship.
