Tennessee plans to rework Cuonzo Martin's contract

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart says the university is reworking the contract of men's basketball coach Cuonzo Martin.

In a statement released Tuesday Hart said, "We are working on modifications to Cuonzo's current contract and will release details of those adjustments when finalized." Martin said, "Tennessee is where I want to be. That has never changed."

Martin did speak with Marquette about its coaching vacancy, but pulled his name from consideration. Marquette announced Tuesday it had hired Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski to replace Buzz Williams, who had left to take over Virginia Tech's program.

Martin is 63-41 in three seasons at Tennessee and just led the Volunteers to an NCAA regional semifinal. Martin makes $1.35 million per year, which ranks him in the bottom half of Southeastern Conference coaches.
