BERKELEY, Calif. — Cuonzo Martin has been named the new coach at Missouri hours after stepping down at California.

Missouri made the announcement late Wednesday afternoon and scheduled a "campus celebration" for Monday.

Cal announced Martin's resignation a day after the short-handed Golden Bears' season ended in the first round of the NIT with a loss to Cal State Bakersfield. Martin completed his third year as head coach in Berkeley.

He will take over for the fired Kim Anderson at Missouri.
