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 class for the 2015-16 season, including top-five overall prospects in Ivan Rabb and Jaylen Brown along with forward Roman Davis of Los Angeles. The 2015-16 season saw the Bears go a perfect 18-0 at home for the best single-season home record at Haas Pavilion, finishing the year with a 19-game overall home winning streak. Cal’s defense was tops in the league, and the Bears limited opponents to a league-low 67.3 points per game while allowing just 39.6 percent of field goals -- the only team in the Pac-12 to limit opponents to under 40 percent.

The Bears capped off 2015-16 with a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament, the highest seed in program history. Brown was named a USBWA Freshman All-American as well as the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year en route to a No. 3 overall selection by the Boston Celtics in the 2016 NBA Draft. Wallace joined Brown as Martin’s second Bear prospect drafted, selected in the second round by the Utah Jazz.

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 165-108, winning just over 60 percent of his games as a head coach. The mentor has guided his teams to the postseason six of the last seven 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 and Pitt).

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 six 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.

Webster has assisted head coach Cuonzo Martin since Martin began his Cal coaching tenure in 2014, helping the Bears achieve a 41-26 record in two seasons as well as the program's highest NCAA Tournament berth in program history, a No. 4 seed in 2015-16. In Webster's most recent season with the Bears, Cal led the league in scoring defense, holding opponents to 67.3 ppg, and ranked in the top three in the conference for rebounds and rebounding margin.

He joined Martin in Tennessee in 2011-12, where 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.

Prior to joining at Tennessee, Webster spent the 2010-11 campaign as an assistant at Nebraska and was on the staff at DePaul for the 2009-10 season where he was appointed the program’s interim head coach in January of 2010. Prior to that, he served as an assistant coach at Kentucky for two seasons as the Wildcats earned postseason berths in 2008 and 2009. 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.

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations.

This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

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.

Meeting the Cal players was definitely a highlight.

July 29, 2016: It was great that this camp had fewer campers. It was less intimidating (especially for my 7 year old) and I felt like they got more out of the experience. Meeting the Cal players and seeing how the collegiate team worked, was definitely a highlight.

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. 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.
