The Univeristy of Missouri has hired Cuonzo Martin to be the 19th basketball coach in school history.
Mizzou will be Martin’s fourth stop as a Division I head coach.
He spent three seasons at Missouri State (2008-2011), Tennessee (2011-2014) and California (2014-2017). Martin’s teams have made the NCAA Tournament twice including a sweet sixteen run in 2014.
Martin is from East St. Louis, Illinois. ESPN’s Jeff Goodman is reporting that Martin will receive a seven year contract for just over $21 million.
