Eric Musselman destroys analyst that called out his coaching ability: 'His credibility is absolutely zero'
If you come at Eric Musselman, you best not miss.
That’s a lesson learned by Todd Fuhrman of CBS Sports, who may have given the Razorbacks some extra motivation heading into the Arkansas-Texas Tech matchup on Sunday.
Of course, Arkansas won the game 68-66 and have moved on to the Sweet Sixteen but that’s not something Fuhrman saw coming.
In fact, the CBS analyst said Texas Tech’s Chris Beard “has to be licking his chops knowing Eric Musselman” was the opposing coach in this matchup.
So much for that.
If you missed the clip of Fuhrman’s comments, here it is:
“When you look at the head coaches in this game, I think it’s one of the biggest mismatches you’re going to see round of 32… Chris Beard has to be licking his chops knowing Eric Musselman is on the other sidelines.”

There’s no doubt the clip made its way back to Musselman, as the coach addressed them in his postgame press conference.
“Whoever that guy is, I’ve never heard of him in my entire life. So his credibility is absolutely zero,” Musselman noted.

Turns out Musselman earned two W’s on Sunday.
