Cuonzo Martin Leaving Vols for California
Sources are reporting Cuonzo Martin has agreed to be the head coach at California. Well it looks like it's back to square one for the Vols basketball program.
Martin coached the Vols basketball program for three seasons, making it to the Sweet 16 in his third. His tenure as head coach of the Vols can be considered up and down. At one point, 36,000 Volunteer fans signed a petition to have Martin fired as head coach of the Vols. It was not until Martin led the Vols to the Sweet 16 this season that Vols fans got on board with the coach.
It's hard to say I blame Martin for taking a job elsewhere. When 36,000 fans want you gone and you don't receive a contract extension it's hard to feel loyal.
