BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - California coach Mike Montgomery is retiring after six seasons at the school.
Cal announced the decision after Montgomery met with athletic director Sandy Barbour on Monday. ESPN first reported Montgomery's decision.
The 67-year-old Montgomery decided to retire following an up-and-down season that ended last Wednesday with a loss to SMU in the quarterfinals of the NIT.
The Golden Bears went 21-14 and made the postseason for the sixth time in as many years under Montgomery but struggled late in the year and missed out on a return trip to the NCAAs.
