Welcome to #BearTerritory! Cuonzo Martin to be announced this afternoon as HeadMen's Basketball Coach @Cal! #GoBears
12:59 PM - 15 Apr 2014
Martin went 63-41 in three seasons at Tennessee, including a 24-13 mark and NCAA regional semifinal appearance this season.
Earlier this month, Martin said he intended to stay at Tennessee. To that end, Vols athletic director Dave Hart went about trying to rework the coach's contract, which was set to run through the end of the 2015-16 season.
Martin also interviewed at Marquette before withdrawing his name from consideration. That job went to Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski.
