LINCOLN — Former Nebraska baseball coach Mike Anderson is apparently headed back to the Big 12.
The Denver Post reported Tuesday that Anderson has agreed to join Oklahoma's staff as an assistant coach.
Anderson, a Nebraska assistant from 1995 to 2002, was named the Huskers' coach in 2003. But NU fired Anderson in 2011, after Nebraska missed the postseason in three straight seasons.
The Huskers compiled a .632 winning percentage in Anderson's nine seasons as coach, reaching the College World Series once, claiming two Big 12 regular season titles and making four NCAA regionals. But they finished either last or second-to-last in conference action from 2009 to 2011.
Anderson spent this past spring as the coach at Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colo. Regis went 14-6 last season, finishing second in its conference and losing a district championship game, according to The Post. He'd replaced former long-time MLB player Walt Weiss, who left Regis in 2012 for the Colorado Rockies' manager position.
Now Anderson, and the rest of the Sooners' staff, will have to fill Sunny Golloway's shoes. Golloway, who left OU for a $650,000 salary to try to rebuild Auburn's program, led Oklahoma to five straight seasons of 40-plus wins and six straight NCAA tournament appearances.
The Sooners hired coach Pete Hughes last week. Hughes was the coach at Virginia Tech.
