Cal men’s basketball coach Mike Montgomery agreed to a two-year contract extension to remain at the school through the 2015-16 season.

The announcement Monday comes nine months after Montgomery disclosed he had bladder cancer and surgery that left him cancer-free. Montgomery led the Bears to a 24-10 record last season, a runner-up finish in the Pac-12 and a first-round loss to South Florida in the NCAA Tournament.

The former Stanford and Warriors head coach is 88-47 in four seasons at Berkeley. He helped Cal win its first regular-season conference title in 50 years in 2010. “We have established a strong foundation of success and look forward to continuing to add to the rich tradition of this program, he said.

Mike is a proven winner, athletic director Sandy Barbour said. His tremendous achievements speak for themselves. Mike epitomizes the mission, vision and values of our department, and I am excited he will continue to lead our men’s basketball program for the next four seasons.”
