Tennessee has hired Cuonzo Martin from Missouri State to replace the recently fired Bruce Pearl. Martin posted a 61-41 record in three years with the Bears. His team won the school’s first-ever Missouri Valley Conference regular season championship this past season.
“Cuonzo is among the most promising young coaches in the game, and we are excited about the coaching ability, toughness, and energy that he brings to our program,” said UT athletic director Mike Hamilton.
Martin will inherit NCAA sanctions and probation as well as big expectations on the court as he tries to replace Pearl.
