One year after signing a seven-year contract extension at Missouri, Mike Anderson is talking with Oregon about its head men’s basketball coaching job. Missouri spokesman Dave Reiter said the university gave Oregon permission Thursday night to speak with Anderson, who was in El Paso, Texas, to play in a charity golf tournament sponsored by former mentor Nolan Richardson. The Oregonian said it confirmed that Anderson had met with Pat Kilkenny, a former Oregon athletic director who is leading the search for a new Oregon coach. The Ducks have been without a head coach since Ernie Kent was fired a month ago after a 16-16 season and ninth-place finish in the Pac-10.
