The Tennessee Volunteers have turned their basketball program over to 39-year-old Cuonzo Martin of Missouri State.

Martin takes the job knowing that the Volunteers program will be facing possible punishment by the NCAA for recruiting violations.

Martin replaces, the popular but mistake-prone Bruce Pearl, who was fired on March 21, just one month after being charged with unethical conduct for lying to NCAA investigators.

Martin has been one of the young, up-and coming coaches, spent eight years as an assistant at Purdue University. In 2008, Missouri State hired him and he compiled a 61-41 record in three seasons. He was selected as the Missouri Valley Conference coach of the year this season after the Bears finished 26-9 and won the program’s first MVC regular-season championship.

One of the top players to ever play at Purdue under Gene Keady, Martin scored 1,666 points in 127 career games from 1991-1995.

When you talk about Bradley University Braves basketball, Jim Les, Hersey Hawkins and Dick Versace are three names that all fans of the program talk about with much appreciation.

Jim Les became the head coach nine years ago, but lost his star-status amongst the Peoria, Illinois’ school’s media contingent, alumni and administration.

Director of Athletics Dr. Michael Cross earlier this week announced that Jim Les has been released from his duties, effective immediately.

Les completed his ninth year as Bradley head coach with a final record of 154-140 (.524), including a 74-88 (.458) mark in Missouri Valley Conference games. He led the Braves to four consecutive postseason appearances in the middle of his tenure, highlighted by a run to the 2006 NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.
