Former Vols coach Cuonzo Martin offered Mizzou job according to reports

Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

Cuonzo Martin is on the move again, and the former Missouri State men's basketball coach may be headed back to the Show-Me State.

California assistant Wyking Jones was named the interim head coach, per a source. His Golden Bears were bounced from the first round of the NIT Tuesday night after being upset at home by Cal State Bakersfield.

At Cal, the Golden Bears made the NCAA Tournament in Martin's second season. Martin played four years at Purdue University where he averaged 13.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2 assists per game.

Martin was born in St. Louis and moved to East St. Louis as a child, and won two Illinois State Championships with Lincoln High School in the late 1980s.

Centre half John Stones called his team's performance "very sloppy" and accepted that the players had let Guardiola down. The loss marks the first time that a Guardiola side have failed to make the last eight of the Champions League .

He was the head coach at Missouri State University for the three years before that, starting in 2008.

Cal athletic director Mike Williams said that Cuonzo Martin informed him this morning of his decision to resign and accept a new coaching position at another school. He led the Bears to the Missouri Valley Conference title his last season.

After Missouri's season ended on March 9 and Kim Anderson's tenure at Missouri came to a close, the initial reports favored the Tigers to hire Indiana's Tom Crean.

ESPN's Paul Finebaum reported that Martin turned down an $18 million contract offer from IL, a program that was viewed by many as the most likely destination for Martin. ESPN's Paul Finebaum reported on Wednesday that Martin turned down an $18 million-dollar offer at the University of IL, though those reports have since been denied.

After announcing the indictments US will put out another official request for their extradition, he said. The hack in question was initiated in 2014 and compromised over 500 million accounts .

During Missouri's 30-win season in 2012, the Tigers' roster boasted five players from St. Louis and Kansas City.

The sides agreed to deal reportedly worth $21 million over seven years, according to ESPN.

In recent years, Missouri's basketball stock dipped.
