Arkansas hires Nevada's Eric Musselman as basketball coach

Elos92vikp7h4qsugvlq

After four seasons in Reno coaching at Nevada, Eric Musselman has moved on and been named the head coach at Arkansas.

Doug Knuth, Nevada Athletics Director, shared a thank you to Musselman on his four year with Nevada Wolf Pack Basketball.

Arkansas fired head coach Mike Anderson following the 2018-19 season in which the Razorbacks disappointed and went 18-16, missing the NCAA Tournament. Musselman also has significant professional experience, having been the head coach of the Golden State Warriors (2002-04) and Sacramento Kings (2006-08).

Yurachek and Musselman finalized an agreement Sunday afternoon for Musselman to take the Arkansas job. Musselman replaces Mike Anderson, who was sacked last month after eight seasons.

Unless Smith signs a new deal (which is very possible after a huge first year), his base salary will be $675,000 for 2019-20, or much less than Musselman's $1-million base salary for last year.

"My family and I couldn't be more excited to be coming to the University of Arkansas", Musselman said. The 46-year-old former longtime Tim Miles assistant won 48 games over his final two years at South Dakota and led Utah State to 28 wins and the Mountain West title in his first season.

Vitiello acknowledged "it was a mistake" and said "he was trying to make a joke", adding that he thought it was a direct message. In addition, despite what Trump suggests, Mexico, China and other American trading partners don't pay USA tariffs directly.

Musselman, 54, has been Nevada's head coach since 2015.

Coach Musselman will formally be introduced on Monday at 3 p.m.at Bud Walton Arena.

"I am ready to get to work with our student-athletes to prepare our program to compete at the highest level of college basketball".

He will be tasked with leading the Razorbacks back to the top of what has become an increasingly competitive SEC, with seven teams making the tournament this season. Either way, he'll now be the head coach of the Razorbacks after four years at Nevada.

Musselman also was an National Basketball Association assistant with Orlando, Atlanta and Memphis.
