John Calipari

"Eric is one of the best in our sport... He has an uncanny feel for the game, and ability to read where the game is at. More importantly, is his ability to motivate and teach his players what it takes to improve and win. He is as good as it gets." - Coach John Calipari

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Former NBA and University of Nevada head coach Eric Musselman has been named as the head men’s basketball coach at the University of Arkansas, Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek announced on Sunday. Musselman has more than 30 years of coaching experience, including 14 years as a head coach in the NBA, NCAA and CBA.

“Eric Musselman is a coach that has had experience at every level of basketball from the NCAA to the NBA,” Yurachek said. “He was practically born into the game and his passion for basketball is unmistakable. He has been successful throughout his career, including the remarkable job he did in returning the University of Nevada into a perennial NCAA Tournament team. Coach Musselman is high-energy and possesses an extremely high basketball IQ. He has a great attention to detail and has structured his programs to develop players individually while building a successful team. I am pleased to welcome Coach Musselman, his wife Danyelle and his family to the Razorback family.”

In the past four years as Nevada’s head coach, Musselman won at least 24 games each season (24, 28, 29 and 29) to post a 110-34 record and .764 winning percentage – sixth-best among active Division I coaches. Prior to entering the collegiate head coaching ranks, Musselman was a head coach for seven professional teams, including two seasons with the Golden State Warriors (2002-04) and one with the Sacramento Kings (2006-07). He has won over 550 games as a professional head coach with an overall winning percentage of .624 (566-340).

“My family and I couldn’t be more excited to be coming to the University of Arkansas,” Coach Musselman said. “The opportunity to be a part of the rich tradition of Razorback Basketball and to experience the passion of the Razorback fans is something that I am very much looking forward to. I am appreciative of the professional manner in which Hunter Yurachek conducted the search and am grateful for the support of Chancellor Steinmetz and all of those affiliated with the University of Arkansas. I am ready to get to work with our student-athletes to prepare our program to compete at the highest level of college basketball.”

At Nevada, Musselman led the Wolf Pack to Mountain West regular-season titles in each of the last three years. The Wolf Pack won the CBI (College Basketball Invitational) postseason tournament in his first year as head coach while adding a Mountain West tournament title in 2017 to secure the program’s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2007. The past two seasons, Nevada earned at-large berths to the NCAA Tournament as a seventh seed each time.

In addition to his teams’ success, numerous individual honors have been bestowed upon his players. Caleb Martin was a two-time All-America selection (2018 and ’19), a two-time district Player of the Year honoree and 2018 Mountain West Player of the Year. Overall, 13 All-Mountain West honors were earned by Wolf Pack players over the last four seasons.

“I applaud Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek on the process to identify and ultimately select Coach Eric Musselman as the next Razorback’s Men’s Basketball coach,” Chancellor Joe Steinmetz said. “The process was rigorous and thorough. I had the opportunity to speak to Coach Musselman a few days ago and I am confident that he will be a great leader for our basketball team and contribute to the players growth as athletes and as successful students.”

Thank You, Wolf Pack Nation

Dear Wolf Pack Nation,

Thank you for being the best fans in the country and your constant support this season. The group of men our team consisted of this year will be grateful for the experience you helped provide them with from the moment they first stepped on campus. 

Our season began in June with summer practices as we competed daily in order to figure out our identity for the upcoming season. Every day that our players stepped in the gym they had a championship mentality and wanted to represent our school in a positive light. 

The Nevada community watched our players grow into men and leaders on and off the court. From June through the end of October, our team not only focused on getting betting on the court but also in our community. Pack players made visits to the local homeless shelter, the children's hospital and numerous elementary schools in the area to give back to the Reno community. These moments they shared with our fans and those in need are moments that they will carry with them long after their time here at Nevada. 

On November 6th we started the season off with a double digit win against BYU and continued to win 14 straight games, the best start in school history. Knocking off Power 5 conferences schools and a final four team from last year, the Pack solidified themselves as one of the top teams in the country. We were undefeated in Lawlor and had the largest attendance in the history of Nevada Basketball. 

Continuing the success into March, we secured our 3rd consecutive Mountain West Regular Season Championship and were 1 of 20 teams to make the NCAA Tournament the past three seasons. We proud that very senior that has been with our program over the past four years has cut down the nets in their last game in Lawlor. 

This senior group will be remembered as one of the greatest to ever put on a Nevada jersey and we thank them for the everlasting memories they helped create. Completing the season with a school record 29 wins and being ranked in the AP Top 20 all year speaks volumes to how special this group was. 

Most importantly, we helped prepare out players for life after college. Whether they want to pursue a professional basketball career or not, we made sure that our players will graduate with their degrees ready to make an impact on the world. We celebrate our players Cody and Caleb Martin, Jordan Caroline, David Cunningham, Trey Porter, Tre Thurman and Corey Henson on the legacy they will leave behind with them once they leave campus after graduation. 

On behalf of our staff and the University of Nevada, we are grateful for you joining us on this incredible journey and look forward seeing you all in Lawlor next season.

Thank you. Go Pack!

Sincerely,

Coach Muss

Historic Season for the Wolf Pack

A historic season comes to an end in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Wolf Pack finishes the season 29-5 with a 3rd consecutive Mountain West Championshiop and nationally ranked in the top 25 for the entire year. 

Our senior-led team accomplished something that many did not think was possible 4 years ago when Coach Musselman took over the program. 

Ranked as high as the #6 team in the country, the Pack swept our non-conference schedule while beating the likes of Arizona State, USC, Utah and Loyola Chicago. This start was the best in Nevada Basketball history. 

We had a team that made history and will be remembered in Reno not only by their basketball play but also how they impacted the community. We wat to thank our seniors for representing our program the way they did and also being great leaders in the community. 

Thank you to all the fans and supporters who helped make this year a special one and we look forward to bringing another special season to Nevada next fall. Go Pack!
