Cuonzo Martin

Boasting a track record of success that includes a conference Coach of the Year honor and postseason berths five of the past six seasons, Cuonzo Martin is regarded as one of the top basketball coaches in the game.

Read Full Bio

In his first season at California in 2014-15, Martin directed the Golden Bears to 18 wins and a run to the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 Tournament. Under his tutelage, Tyrone Wallace successfully transitioned to the point guard role. Wallace was named a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award recognizing the nation’s top point guard in his first season at the position. The point guard finished the season as the only individual in the Pac-12 to place in the top five in the conference in scoring, rebounding and assists. David Kravish completed his career as the school’s all-time leader in blocks and one of the program’s top scorers and rebounders of all-time.    

Martin and his staff signed a consensus national top-10 recruiting classes for the 2015-16 season, including top-five overall prospects in Ivan Rabb and Jaylen Brown and forward Roman Davis from Los Angeles.

Prior to California, Martin served as the head coach at Tennessee for three seasons, guiding the Volunteers to a spot in the Sweet 16 of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.  

Martin owns a career record of 142-97, winning nearly 60 percent of his games as a head coach. The mentor has guided his teams to the postseason five of the last six years and has averaged more than 20 victories over seven seasons.

The 43-year-old Martin, a native of East St. Louis, Ill., has served the game of basketball for more than two decades, beginning with a standout four-year playing career at Purdue University. He has played and coached alongside some of the most highly-regarded mentors in the game, including Hall of Fame Coach Gene Keady. Martin is a member of a distinguished group of successful college basketball coaches to serve under Keady, along with Matt Painter (Purdue), Bruce Weber (Illinois and Kansas State), Steve Lavin (UCLA and St. John’s) and Kevin Stallings (Vanderbilt).

As the head coach at Tennessee in 2013-14, Martin led the Volunteers to the Sweet 16 and a national ranking of 23rd in the final USA Today coaches poll. With a 24-13 final record, Tennessee matched its fourth-best win total in school history and recorded the most victories since the 2009-10 campaign. After earning a berth in the NCAA’s First Four, the Martin-led Volunteers captured victories over Iowa, Massachusetts and Mercer to equal the most wins in one NCAA Tournament in program history.

Over his three seasons at Tennessee, Martin posted a 63-41 mark, taking the Vols to the postseason all three years. They finished in the top-five of the powerful SEC in each of Martin’s three seasons, including a tie for second in his first campaign after the squad was predicted to place 11th in the conference’s preseason poll. UT earned a berth in the National Invitation Tournament his first two years, before garnering an NCAA Tournament selection in 2014. Under Martin’s tutelage, forward Jarnell Stokes was a two-time first-team All-SEC selection and was one of just three individuals in the six power conferences this season to average a double-double. Stokes led the SEC and ranked seventh nationally in rebounding at 10.6 rpg., while also averaging 15.1 ppg.

Predicated on tenacity and defense, Martin’s 2013-14 Tennessee squad limited opponents to just 61.7 ppg., the lowest in the SEC and second-lowest total at UT since 1969. The Vols ranked 18th nationally in total defense this past year.   

Prior to taking over at Tennessee, Martin served as head coach at Missouri State for three years where he built a record of 61-41 with win totals of 24 and 26 his final two seasons. He led the Bears to the CollegeInsider.com Tournament title in 2010. In 2010-11, Martin guided Missouri State to its first-ever regular-season Missouri Valley Conference championship and along the way became the program’s first-ever MVC Coach of the Year. He was the 2011 recipient of the Ben Jobe National Coach of the Year Award, presented annually to the top minority head coach in Division I men’s basketball.

Martin began his coaching career serving as an assist on the staff at West Lafayette High School in Indiana. His first stint as a collegiate coach came at Purdue where he joined the staff for the 2000-01 season under Keady, his college coach. He remained on staff with current Purdue head coach Matt Painter and was elevated to associate head coach for the 2007-08 season before being hired as head coach at Missouri State the next year. During his eight-year tenure at Purdue, Martin mentored several all-conference standouts, including All-American and current Minnesota Timberwolves forward Robbie Hummel.

Martin also has experience as a coach with USA Basketball, serving on the staff for the USA Junior National Team at the 2011 FISU World University Games in Shenzhen, China. 

As a player, Martin was a first-team All-Big Ten selection in 1995 at Purdue when he averaged 18.4 ppg and sank 91 three-pointers. He graduated in 1995 as one of the program’s all-time leaders in three-pointers (179) and one of the Boilermakers’ career scoring leaders (1,666). Playing under Keady and alongside All-American Glenn Robinson, Martin led Purdue to a pair of Big Ten titles and to a 90-37 record over four years. The Boilermakers went to the postseason each season with Martin, reaching the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament as a junior in 1994. 

Following his stellar collegiate playing career, Martin was selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 57th overall pick of the 1995 NBA Draft. He played professionally for four years with the Hawks, Milwaukee Bucks and Vancouver Grizzlies. In 1997, Martin was the leading scorer for Felize Scandone in Italy. 

Martin returned to his alma mater where he earned his bachelor’s degree in restaurant, hotel, institutional and tourism management from Purdue in 2000. He and his wife, Roberta, have two sons, Joshua and Chase, and a daughter, Addison.

Boasting more than a decade of Division I coaching experience, Webster was appointed California's associate head coach on April 30, 2014. He has had success throughout his career, with five NCAA Tournament berths and one Final Four appearance as a coach. In 2009, HoopScoopOnline.com ranked Webster as one of the top 50 assistant coaches in the nation.

Following just one season as an assistant coach, Webster was elevated to Tennessee’s associate head coach prior to the 2012-13 season. He has helped guide Tennessee to postseason berths each of his three years on the coaching staff in Knoxville, including an appearance in the Sweet 16 last season. Webster played an important role in the development of Tennessee standout shooting guard Jordan McRae, who finished his career among UT’s career leaders in scoring (16th, 1,521 points), three-point field goals (T-7th, 179) and blocks (13th, 97). A two-time First Team All-SEC selection, McRae received 2013 SEC Player of the Year laurels by ESPN’s Jay Bilas and Jimmy Dykes and CBS Sports’ Seth Davis.

At Kentucky, he played a role in the development of Jodie Meeks, who recently completed his fifth season in the NBA and second with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Webster, who played collegiately at Wisconsin, has also coached at Illinois, Purdue and Ball State at the Division I level. As a member of Bruce Weber’s staff at Illinois for three seasons, the Fighting Illini earned an NCAA Tournament berth each year. The 2005 Illinois squad, which featured five eventual NBA players including three-time All-Star Deron Williams, tied the NCAA record for wins in a season with a 37-2 mark and reached the Final Four where the Fighting Illini dropped a 75-70 decision to North Carolina in the national title game.  

During his days at Purdue, Webster was an assistant along with Martin under Hall of Fame head coach Gene Keady where the Boilermakers reached the postseason in his one year on the staff in West Lafayette, Ind.

He began his coaching career at Division III Wisconsin-Parkside in 1998 before a three-year stint on the coaching staff at Ball State.

A native of Harvey, Ill., Webster was an All-State point guard at Thornton High School where he was named the sixth-best point guard in Chicago scholastic history in 1992. He went on to earn three varsity letters at Wisconsin (1992-94), posting 1,264 points and a school-record 501 assists with the Badgers. A three-time All-Big Ten selection, Webster also owns the school career record for three-point percentage (.490) and is one of Wisconsin’s all-time leaders in steals with 183 in his career in Madison. His 36 points against Southeast Missouri State in November of 1991 is the 10th-most in a single game in Wisconsin history.    

Webster earned his bachelor’s degree from Wisconsin in 1995 and is married to the former Shenetta Richardson.

I'm continually impressed.

This is my son's 4th or 5th year attending this camp and it's always fantastic. I'm continually impressed with the positive messages and supportive coaches. I love that parents can come watch. I think my son loves not only the games but getting to see the Coach and any players who show up.

A positive experience for my son!

This was a great camp run by a professional and friendly team. My son can't wait to return next year. My son gained more confidence. He walked off the court tired, but smiling each day! This was such a positive experience for my son that he has already recommended to a few of his friends.

I loved the coaches comments on the last day.

I loved the coaches comments on the last day. They were great for both sports and in the class room. My son is just now learning about real competition and commitment both in the classroom and on the soccer field, particularly, and the coaches message rang very true.

This was so fun for my son!

June 23, 2016: We attended the Father-Son Camp. My favorite part was having Q&A with Coach Martin and his players and going down to the locker room to review film and get a glimpse at how pre-game scouting is done. For my 9 year old son, meeting the coach and his star players, Ivan Rabb and Jabari Bird, made his week. The coaches were key to the value offered in this Father-Son camp. Plus, we are die hard Golden Bear fans so this was a huge weekend for the both of us to share.

Coach Wiley is the best

June 27, 2016: Coach Wiley is the best; I am extremely impressed with him year after year. All camp counselors should have his level of energy, enthusiasm, sensitivity and compassion. He is remarkable and I'm so glad he returns to coach/help year after year. He is very very special. I loved that my son was exhausted, sore, and happy every day. This is the only camp he wants to keep doing year after year.
