Arkansas officially announced the hire of Eric Musselman on Sunday to be the schools new Head Men’s Basketball Coach. Musselman comes to the Fayetteville after four years as Nevada head coach and three straight trips to the NCAA Tournament. Per ArkansasRazorbacks.com:
quote:

“Eric Musselman is a coach that has had experience at every level of basketball from the NCAA to the NBA,” Yurachek said. “He was practically born into the game and his passion for basketball is unmistakable. He has been successful throughout his career, including the remarkable job he did in returning the University of Nevada into a perennial NCAA Tournament team. Coach Musselman is high-energy and possesses an extremely high basketball IQ. He has a great attention to detail and has structured his programs to develop players individually while building a successful team. I am pleased to welcome Coach Musselman, his wife Danyelle and his family to the Razorback family.”

In the past four years as Nevada’s head coach, Musselman won at least 24 games each season (24, 28, 29 and 29) to post a 110-34 record and .764 winning percentage – sixth-best among active Division I coaches. Prior to entering the collegiate head coaching ranks, Musselman was a head coach for seven professional teams, including two seasons with the Golden State Warriors (2002-04) and one with the Sacramento Kings (2006-07). He has won over 550 games as a professional head coach with an overall winning percentage of .624 (566-340).

If Musselman puts his wife on the payroll, that would be a problem. The Hogs will do it too! Did it recently in football.
