COLUMBIA — Missouri men's head basketball coach Mike Anderson resigned Wednesday after leading the Tigers for the past five seasons. He will be taking the head men's basketball coaching position at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, where he was an assistant for 17 seasons. 

Anderson's contract with Arkansas stipulates that he will receive $2.2 million per year for seven years, a $650,000 increase over his 2010-11 salary at Missouri.

I would have jumped ship for that kind of money too! Can you really blame him that's a big chunk of change. And he had given them seventeen years befroe he came here.
