One of the trending sports news today is Cuonzo Martin resigns from California to become Missouri’s next coach. Well, it is crystal clear, he is on the move again!

Cuonzo Martin has agreed to become the basketball coach at Missouri on Wednesday. His current Contract stands for seven years, and the deal is more than $21 million, his salary is yet to be released. 

Martin resigned earlier in the same day as coach at California. On the other hand, Wyking Jones will serve as interim coach, the school has announced. Missouri athletic director Jim Sterk said in a statement:

"We are thrilled that Cuonzo is returning to the Midwest and that his family will now call Columbia home. From the outset of our search, our goal was to find a coach who had demonstrated success, academically and on the court, while also sharing our values and who can help to reignite interest in Mizzou men's basketball among our fan base."

Earlier in the day, it was clear that Missouri had offered the job of Coach to Martin who is a native of East St. Louis, Illinois, and that he was taking the job into consideration and the opportunity to replace Kim Anderson, who was fired earlier in the month. California athletic director Mike Williams said in news release:

"Cuonzo Martin informed me this morning that he is resigning to accept a position at another school. We put forth our best effort to retain him, but he told me it wasn't about Cal, rather a strong desire to move closer to home.

Moreover, he added:

"We appreciate all that Cuonzo has done with our men's basketball program over the past three seasons, creating excitement inside Haas Pavilion, guiding our team to a pair of postseason appearances and improving the academic performance of our student-athletes."

Martin went 62-39 in overall three seasons in California, leading the team to the NCAA tournament in 2016. Martin also recruited an elite class of players in 2015, landing five-star prospect player Jaylen Brown, who became the No.Three picks in 2016's NBA draft as well as Ivan Rabb, a likely first-round selection this June.
