Mike Montgomery rejoins Westwood One as an NCAA basketball analyst, having previously worked on the network prior to his most recent coaching stint at Cal.
Montgomery’s storied basketball head coaching career included stints with the University of Montana, Stanford University, the Golden State Warriors, and the University of California, Berkley. With an overall record of 677-317 spanning 34 seasons in college basketball, he is one of only 84 men’s coaches to have amassed 600 career wins.
Most recently, Mike spent six seasons at Cal, where he compiled a 130-73 record (.640). The Golden Bears made four NCAA tournament appearances under Montgomery.
Prior to the Bears, he spent 18 years at Stanford where he guided the Cardinal to 12 NCAA Tournaments, including the 1998 Final Four, 2001 Elite Eight and 1997 Sweet Sixteen. Stanford compiled a 393-167 (.702) record under Montgomery, who earned four Pac-10 Coach of the Year honors and was named Naismith Coach of the Year in 2000.
After retiring from head coaching in April 2014, Montgomery joined the men’s basketball broadcasting teams at Pac-12 Networks and Westwood One Sports as an analyst.
