Lol wow, can't blame him. Smart to jump ship since it wasn't going to get any better.

OK, no one deserves that stuff.
Surprised they just didn't go with For Sale signs like everyone else does.

It's his fault preseason expectations were so low.
In a year like this one, that roster was Final Four caliber.

He wasn't wanted there and he didn't want to be there.
California is the only loser in any of this.


ETA: Okoroh already committed to Cal.

Consider the source on the way out here stuff. Martin was on his way out last year. He can't recruit or coach talented players. His style is not one kids want to play in and both sides are better off today than they were yesterday. And I seriously doubt anyone burned a cross in his yard or threatened his wife. Its freaking basketball.

We got Franklined
Sorta. Franklin has past PSU connections.  Does Cuonzo have any Cal ones or did he just jump onto the nearest floating ship?

I don't pay much attention to minor league hand soccer but isn't Marquette a better job than Cal?  Why would he not take the Marquette job?

tenn fans ran him off, so he said fine ill go. i just dont understand not wanting a coach that just took you to the sweet 16. tucky got beat in the 1st round of the nit last year and pulled some miracle bullPosted Image this year. you stick with a decent coach and he will lead you to good things.

He dumped us. That's how everyone will see it

Yep. http://espn.go.com/b...nt-but-deserves , http://sports.yahoo....-203053186.html .

Seems like some folks/fans are downplaying their role in the events today; but they must care and must feel like the ugly duckling that didn't get asked to the prom because there are about a half dozen or so threads on Volnation talking about it.

There's a world of difference between criticism and what Cuonzo endured.

I don't think anybody left solely because of a petition, although even that's overboard.

It's all the other things that were pretty shocking, like the man's wife getting accosted in public and apparently finding confederate flags in his yard.

That kind of stuff is borderline criminal and will make a man fear for his safety and that of his family.

The guy wasn't a great coach for most of the regular season; but it frequently takes at least 3 years for a new coach to change everything around and make a program his... it looked to me like he finally accomplished that by the time the tourney rolled around.

And, despite the treatment from fans, he still kicked some behind in the tourney; he had every right to throw in the towel after the treatment he'd received, but he didn't do that.

UT fans are entitled to think they deserve better coaching; but it seems like a significant portion of them (14,000 attend games, but over 30,000 signed the petition) don't realize that the way they're going about it is akin to shooting oneself in the foot.

Honestly, what top coach is going to consider UT after watching how Cuonzo was just treated? If UT does manage to attract one, they're likely going to have to spend more money than they otherwise would have because of that fan treatment, and definitely more than that pittance they were paying Martin... $1.3m isn't much for a major university that wants to consider itself one of the big boys.

It's a good decision by Martin.It's obvious that the SEC is a brutal conference to win in.It's a cut throat,Katie bar the door,league that few coaches are able to be successful in.

Heck,most of the coaches here we've never heard of probably because they're under witness protection.What better place to hide.

Dude wasn't getting it done and Pearls players were leaving. He was never going to be as marketable as he was this year and it was pretty clear he was on the way out at UT so more power to him landing another gig before he was fired.

I get that you really need to feel like UT is screwed or screwed over Martin but sorry that's just not the case. The 1.3 a year was a huge raise for a first big job and in line with what Martin brought. I mean come on, the most talented roster UT has had in decades and we are in a play in game for the NCAAs to show for it? If he was getting it done he gets an extension and we are not discussing this. And as for hiring his replacement, most coaches believe they can win and are not worried about getting their feelings hurt if they under perform.

i can actually answer this one with a fraction of familiarity. we ran off houston nutt by flying airplanes over the stadium pulling banners demanding him be fired, getting his phone logs via F.O.I. and wearing all black to ballgames. After he did finally get the can, guess who we replace him with? The only coach worth a Posted Image that would have actually considered us..... bobby Posted Imageing petrino. if you think coaches dont notice how the exiting coach before their offer was treated, think again.
