BERKELEY, Calif. — California has hired Tennessee’s Cuonzo Martin as its head men’s basketball coach.

Cal announced Martin’s hiring Tuesday. He replaces Mike Montgomery, who retired last month after six seasons in Berkeley.

Martin went 63-41 in three seasons at Tennessee, including a 24-13 mark and an appearance in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament this season. He was previously the coach at Missouri State.

Martin was scheduled to be introduced at Cal during a news conference Tuesday afternoon.
