FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Mike Anderson has brought five of his former Missouri assistants with him to Arkansas.

The new Razorbacks’ basketball coach hired the members of his coaching and support staff Tuesday. They include associate head coach Melvin Watkins, assistant coaches Matt Zimmerman and T.J. Cleveland, director of operations Jeff Daniels and strength and conditioning coach David Deets.

Watkins is a former head coach at Texas A&M and North Carolina-Charlotte and has been with Anderson since he took over at Missouri in 2006.

Zimmerman was a former student-manager for Arkansas when Anderson was an assistant under Nolan Richardson and Cleveland is a four-time letterman for the Razorbacks.

Anderson was hired on March 23 after posting a 111-57 mark in five seasons at Missouri and finishing 89-41 in four seasons at Alabama-Birmingham before that.
