Basketball: Montgomery to undergo surgery

The Cal athletic department announced tonight that coach Mike Montgomery will undergo an unspecified surgical procedure on Wednesday and will be out for a short recovery period.

In his absence, assistant coaches Travis DeCuire and Jay John will run the team.

The athletic department asked that Montgomery and his family be given privacy on the matter and offered no other details.

    I wish him well -maybe we can bring back Jason Kidd to be a temp. He’s not doing much this year.
