The St. John's basketball program was left in a state of flux after head coach Chris Mullin stepped down following four seasons with the team.
Now, they reportedly have their next head coach, and its Mike Anderson, according to Newsdays' Roger Rubin.
St. John's has been through a laundry list of candidates, including Bobby Hurley, Tim Cluess, and Peter Hoyer, but all declined the gig after receiving offers.
Anderson has spent the past eight seasons with the Arkansas Razorbacks basketball program. During his lengthy stint, Anderson led Arkansas to three NCAA Tournament berths, where they reached the Round of 32 twice (2015, 2017).
After reaching the NIT, Arkansas decided it was time to part ways with Anderson, as they hired Nevada coach Eric Musselman to replace him.

Prior to his Arkansas gig, Anderson was the head coach of UAB (2002-06) and Missouri (2007-11). His most successful season came with Missouri, as he took the team to the Elite Eight in 2009. Between all three universities, Anderson compiled a 369-200 record.
The lengthy search appears to be over, with Mike Anderson as the new coach for the Red Storm in Queens.
