Former Vols coach Cuonzo Martin offered Mizzou job according to reports

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.
