Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin announced Tuesday that he has promoted Tracy Webster to associate head coach.
Webster, who, like Martin, is entering his second season with the Volunteers, has previously held the title of assistant coach since his hiring on April 5, 2011.
“This is about the work that Tracy has put in,” Martin said. “He’s a tireless worker, and he’s driven to see this program be successful. His efforts to develop our current players, along with his efforts in recruiting, deserve to be rewarded.”
Webster works closely with Tennessee’s guards, and his player development efforts last season helped the Vols finish second in the Southeastern Conference after initially being projected to finish 11th in the league.
A three-time All-Big 10 selection during his collegiate playing career at Wisconsin (1992-95), Webster boasts nine season on high-major Division I coaching experience, with four NCAA Tournament berths and one Final Four appearance to his credit.
