Agent: Mike Anderson, Missouri seeking contract extension

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

— Missouri coach Mike Anderson’s agent says he is negotiating a new contract with the school amid continued reports that Arkansas is trying to lure him away.

Jimmy Sexton told Memphis radio station WHBQ-AM Tuesday morning that “we’ve been in discussion with them for several weeks now.”

Sexton is a Memphis resident whose firm also represents several ACC, SEC and NFL coaches, including Alabama football coach Nick Saban and Rex Ryan of the New York Jets. He added that while “nothing is imminent” he expects “some resolution ... in the next few days.”
