Muss Bus Moving Forward

NWA Daily

After an exceptional display of leadership at the 2021 NCAA Tournament, a few sources are reporting Coach Eric Musselman has reached an agreement with the University of Arkansas to remain as head basketball coach for the Hogs.

  • Hot commodity: Musselman turned heads after leading the Razorbacks to the Elite Eight for the first time since 1995. This year marks the second of Musselman's five-year contract with the university - which he originally signed for $2.5M per year. He'll receive a hefty raise of $250k for the Hogs' appearance in the Sweet 16.

  • In good hands: Athletic Director Hunter Yurachek tweeted Monday evening that Musselman may be locked in for another few seasons at Arkansas. “Sleep well Arkansas! @RazorbackMBB is in good hands."

  • Quote: “I don’t think there’s been any hesitation at all from my end or from Hunter’s end... I have two bosses — Hunter and Danyelle. I think both of my bosses feel strongly about the same things I do, which is we have something really cool going right now," Musselman said.
