Mike Neighbors’ dream has always been to be the head coach of Arkansas’ women’s basketball team. We start our conversation with how getting cut from the Razorback baseball team spurred him on to try coaching
We talk about why he’s eliminated “goals” from the program
and how he started his coaching career at the high school level
Neighbors tells us about how having his first heart attack changed everything for him
and how that journey led to him getting his first head coaching job at Washington
Finally, we get into how playing guitar helps him decompress
and how he’d describe himself as a coach
