Cal Coach Cuonzo Martin Finally Signs Contract

After two years leading the men’s basketball team, Cal head coach Cuonzo Martin has finally signed a contract with the school.

 

Martin had been working the past two seasons under a binding term sheet he had received when he took the job back in April 2014.

 

The deal, which will play him a $1.64 million annual base salary, was ready months ago, but was delayed pending a sexual harassment complaint against former assistant coach Yann Hufnagel.

 

But a review of the allegations found that Martin “responded appropriately and promptly to the complaint in alignment with UC policy requirements” and his contract was finally signed.

 

“Cuonzo has demonstrated that he is an educator, first and foremost, and cares deeply about developing young people into responsible and productive adults,” Cal athletic director Mike Williams said via a statement. “Not only have we seen outstanding results on the court, his teams have shown a deep commitment to their work in the classroom.”

 

“We couldn’t be happier with the trajectory of the program,” Williams added.

 

Some Cal fans were upset that the school had waited so long to make the pact official, fearing they would lose Martin to another school.

 

In his two seasons, Martin has compiled a 41-26 record, including guiding the Bears to an NCAA tournament berth this year.

 

Cal also earned a perfect 1,000 Academic Progress Rate score for 2014-15.
