Cuonzo Martin to join California as coach
April 16 , 2014
Cuonzo Martin has made the decision to leave Tennessee for California. The development was a shocker to Volunteers administrators and players since he committed to Tennessee only two weeks ago.
"It's a beautiful place," Martin said. "I got off the plane and I just said, 'Ahhh.' I think it has a chance to be special here. I think that's the most intriguing thing to me. It's a place I could spend the rest of my life."
Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart mentioned that Martin was very emotional. "The bottom line is he said in his heart he believed this was best for him and his family."
