Cuonzo Martin-to-Missouri could be happening.
A report from Scout.com’s Evan Daniels surfaced Wednesday afternoon that stated Martin informed his California team that he was taking another head-coaching job. Martin reportedly was offered the Tigers’ open head-coaching job earlier in the afternoon.
The Tigers finished 8-24 this past season before moving past Kim Anderson. Missouri hasn’t appeared in the NCAA Tournament since 2013.
Twitter had plenty to say about the development. Here’s a sampling of the reaction:
Lol Cuonzo Martin really?

@CuonzoMartin first thing you should do at Mizzou is call Travis Ford and get an annual game going at scottrade center in St. Louis.

If Cuonzo Martin gets the Mizzou job, the SEC better be on alert because he will turn that program around

Cal will replace Cuonzo Martin with a photograph of sadness, which will become the 4th highest paid CA public employee

Wish Cuonzo Martin luck at Missouri, he's going to need it. Would be impressed if he had them near the tournament in 3 years.
