Cal inks Montgomery
Wearing a blue shirt and gold tie Saturday after 18 years in Cardinal red, Mike Montgomery agreed to a six-year contract to coach at Cal nearly four years after he left Stanford for a dismal stint with the Golden State Warriors. Montgomery won 393 games and four Pac-10 titles at Stanford, and he sees no reason the Cardinal's archrivals can't enjoy the same success.
