KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Tennessee head basketball coach Cuonzo Martin has met with officials at Marquette about their head coach opening, according to ESPN.COM.

The sports network cites multiple sources and reports that Marquette has "serious interest" in hiring Martin.

Tennessee is coming off a 24 win season and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

The Vols lost to Michigan 73-71 in the Midwest Region semi finals after beating Iowa, UMass and Mercer to make it to the Sweet Sixteen in Indianapolis.

Martin has just completed his third season at Tennessee. The Vols have increased their win total in each of the years he has coached in Knoxville.

Marquette, a member of the Big East, has been searching for a head coach since Buzz Williams resigned last week to take a similar position at Virginia Tech.
