St. John's landed on former UAB/Missouri/Arkansas coach Mike Anderson, who was officially introduced as the Red Storm's coach on Friday afternoon. In 17 seasons as a college basketball head coach, Anderson has compiled an overall record of 369-200. His nine NCAA tournament appearances are highlighted by an Elite Eight appearance in 2009 with Missouri.

"Coach Anderson is one of the most respected coaches in college basketball and there is no doubt in my mind that he is the flawless fit to lead our program", St. John's athletics director Mike Cragg said.

It could wind up being an outside-the-box hire that works beyond anyone's expectation - but it is a freaky choice, make no mistake. With his hiring at St. John's, Arkansas is now off the hook for Anderson's buyout.

Spokesman Mike Edmondson said the release is not imminent, as the office is processing numerous public records in the case. Prosecutors have said there are no human trafficking charges filed in the Jupiter massage parlor cases.

Anderson, 59, spent the last eight years at Arkansas, where he posted a 169-102 record and three NCAA tournament berths. "This basketball program is rooted with such great tradition and it has a history built by legendary coaches, so this is a humbling experience".

Anderson previously played under coach Nolan Richardson at the University of Tulsa and followed Richardson to Arkansas, where Anderson served as an assistant coach for seventeen years, from 1985-2002, including the Hogs' national championship season in 1994.
