Hired by the Golden Bears on April 5, 2008, Montgomery guided Cal to its winningest six-year stretch in school history and completed his career with 130 victories in six seasons, good for third on the school's all-time wins list.
Cal went 21-14 last season, culminating in a loss to SMU in the NIT.
Prior to his stint with the Golden Bears, Montgomery served as the head coach of the NBA's Golden State Warriors from 2004-06, but was fired after consecutive 34-48 finishes.
Before joining the Warriors, Montgomery spent 18 seasons at Stanford, one of Cal's fiercest rivals, and guided the Cardinal to a 393-167 record, becoming the school's all-time winningest coach. A four-time Pac-10 coach of the year, Montgomery led the Cardinal to 12 NCAA Tournament appearances and to the 1998 Final Four. Stanford won four regular-season Pac-10 titles, and one Pac-10 Tournament under his watch.
Montgomery ranks third in conference history with 282 league wins and is No. 25 on the NCAA Division I men's basketball wins list with 677.
