Cuonzo Martin to be new California head coach

Posted on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 2:04 pm

California has hired Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin to replace Mike Montgomery, multiple media sources have reported.

Martin has spent the past three seasons in Knoxville and led the Vols to the NCAA tournament this season. He was previously the coach at Missouri State.

Montgomery retired last month after six seasons in Berkeley. California was 21-14 this season and played in the NIT.

Martin went 63-41 in three seasons at Tennessee, including a 24-13 mark and NCAA regional semifinal appearance this season.

Tennessee athletic director and vice chancellor Dave Hart is scheduled to meet with the media at 2:30 p.m. to discuss the change.
