Anderson is staying put

Columbia (KMOV.com) -- The basketball coach who led the Tigers to a school-record 31 victories this season is close to signing a 7-year contract with the University worth between $1.3 and $1.5 million annually.

ESPN.com reported earlier in the day the University of Georgia had offered their head coaching job to Anderson for $2.1 million a year.

Coming off a season which Anderson took a team picked to finish in the bottom half of the Big 12 to the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament made him one of the hottest commodities in college basketball.
