06:16 AM ET 04.01 | Despite going through extensive negotiations with Georgia officials through much of the day Tuesday, Missouri coach Mike Anderson chose instead to sign a new seven-year contract to remain with the Tigers. Where Georgia might turn now is unclear. Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel was considered one of the Bulldogs' top targets. Monday, Oklahoma athletics director Joe Castiglione, citing personal philosophy, declined to say whether Georgia had sought permission to contact Capel. And phone calls to Capel have not been returned. The criteria set forth by Georgia athletics director Damon Evans and UGA President Michael Adams at the outset of its coaching change -- they fired Dennis Felton on Jan. 29 -- was for an experienced, successful Division I head coach. A few coaches who fit that description are Clemson's Oliver Purnell, Baylor's Scott Drew, Xavier's Sean Miller, Butler's Brad Stevens and Penn State's Ed DeChellis.
