GVX: Offseason could be time to evaluate Martin's contract
Brendan F. Quinn Knoxville News-Sentinel
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (KNS) - With college basketball's offseason approaching, the time has begun when coaching carousels whirl and negotiations preempt vacations.
With that in mind, the question persists whether Tennessee will take another look at men's coach Cuonzo Martin's contract.
Martin is two years into a five-year deal worth $1.3 million annually. His salary is tied with Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy's for 10th among the SEC's 14 coaches.
On Tuesday, a source with knowledge of the situation told the News Sentinel that Martin and his agent, Andrew "Buddy" Baker, will pursue an extension and possible renegotiation of his current contract when or if Tennessee reaches out this offseason.
