Cal Coach Cuonzo Martin Resigns, Expected To Take Missouri Job

Cal head coach Cuonzo Martin has resigned, and is expected to take a job elsewhere.

Earlier today, multiple reports confirmed that Missouri had offered Martin its head coaching vacancy. It appears he is going to accept the job.

Cal announced Martin has stepped down, and ESPN's Jeff Goodman says he "is expected" to land at Missouri.

According to Alex Schiffer, Missouri offered Martin a five-year deal worth $3.5 million per year, but Goodman is saying the school is working on a seven-year pact.

Martin has spent the last three years at Cal, compiling a 62-39 record. He led his team to a No.4 seed in the NCAA Tournament last season, but the Bears fell to 13th-seeded Hawaii.

This year, Cal was one of the last teams left out of the field of 68. The Bears earned a No. 1 seed in the NIT, but lost at home last night to No. 8 seed Cal State Bakersfield, 73-66.

Before arriving at Cal, Martin had three-year stints at Missouri State and Tennessee. He took the Volunteers to the Sweet 16 in 2014.
