In an interview Tuesday with Memphis radio station WHBQ-AM, Memphis-based Jimmy Sexton, Mizzou coach Mike Anderson's agent, spoke briefly to the status of contract extension conversations with MU.

"We've been in discussions with them for several weeks now," he said. "Those are ongoing discussions. Nothing is imminent this second, so I can't really speak to it. But there should be some resolution to that in the next few days."

Sexton did not address whether he also is negotiating with Arkansas, which is believed to have interest in Anderson but is not known to have made an offer.
