Arkansas women’s basketball has its next head coach: Mike Neighbors.
After being rumored for the job over the weekend, the university officially announced the hiring of Neighbors on Monday. The former Washington coach even penned a letter to the Razorback fan base, calling the Arkansas position his “dream job.”
“It’s more than a dream,” Neighbors wrote. “A lot of the time, things like this don’t live up to the expectations that you establish in your dreams. This will exceed it.”
Neighbors was 98-40 overall as the head coach at Washington, with three NCAA Tournament appearances.
