Basketball: Mike Montgomery agrees to contract extension through 2015-16 season

Coach Mike Montgomery will be at Cal through the 2015-16 season after signing a two-year contract extension, the school announced.

“Mike is a proven winner as a coach on the basketball court and as a mentor in developing our student-athletes here at Cal,” athletic director Sandy Barbour said. “His tremendous achievements speak for themselves. Mike epitomizes the mission, vision and values of our department and I am excited he will continue to lead our men’s basketball program for the next four seasons.”

Montgomery is 88-47 through his first four seasons at Berkeley, including the 2010 Pac-10 title — the school’s first in 50 years. The Bears have won at least 18 games and finished in the top four of the conference each season under Montgomery.

Montgomery thanked the Cal administration and said he’s proud of what the program has achieved.

“Thanks to the tremendous support of the University, the administration and my staff, we have established a strong foundation of success and look forward to continuing to add to the rich tradition of this program,” he said.
