Tennessee Hires Cuonzo Martin as Basketball Coach


I don't really have time to do a real writeup now, but I did want to note that Tennessee has replaced Bruce Pearl with Missouri State's Cuonzo Martin. He was an assistant at Purdue before taking over the Bears, with whom he won the Missouri Valley Conference regular season title this year. Priority No. 1 for Martin will be keeping a steady hand and head as Tennessee waits for and then weathers its upcoming penalties from the Bruce Pearl fallout.
