Mike Montgomery spent 18 seasons at Stanford but returns Saturday to "The Farm" as the traitor coach of a sworn enemy from across the bay at Berkeley. News of Monty's crossover dribble has been buzzing all over Facebook. Yeah, right. "None of the kids on my team played against me, none of the kids on that team did I coach, so I'm just another old fogey as far as that goes," Montgomery reflected this week.

California basketball Coach Mike Montgomery was reprimanded by the Pac-12 Conference on Monday for shoving one of his players in the chest during a game against USC. The conference did not announce what punishment Montgomery received for his actions Sunday night, although he will not be suspended. "While emotions can run high in competitive environments, Pac-12 coaches are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that will reflect credit on the institution and the conference," Commissioner Larry Scott said.

Stanford coach Mike Montgomery has asked that he no longer be considered for the vacant head basketball coaching position at the University of Maryland. "It's a great job, and the situation is primed for the right guy to come in and make things happen, but it won't be Mike Montgomery," said Montgomery, who has coached at Stanford three years. Montgomery, 41, told the Baltimore Sun that he met with Maryland officials, including Athletic Director Lew Perkins, Tuesday at a "neutral" site.

Lawrence Hill matched his career high with 25 points and Stanford spoiled former coach Mike Montgomery's return to Maples Pavilion with a 75-69 victory over No. 22 California on Saturday night at Palo Alto. The Cardinal's big win in the season's first meeting for Bay Area bragging rights ended Cal's nine-game winning streak and also might have knocked the Golden Bears out of the top 25 after they got back into the poll for the first time since 2003.

Stanford Coach Mike Montgomery is weary of his team's growing reputation as a rough-and-tumble team. The Cardinal's image was only enhanced Friday when it won a wrestling match against Purdue, a Big Ten team with a tough reputation of its own. "We don't put them in a padded room and only the starters emerge," a defensive Montgomery said. Rhode Island Coach Jim Harrick, whose team plays Stanford in today's Midwest Regional final, was eager to exploit the angle in his Saturday news conference.

With his intellectual approach and his wardrobe of earth-tone suits, Mike Montgomery has been the understated epitome of Stanford basketball for 18 years. But perhaps the silver Porsche Boxster he drove around Palo Alto should have been a hint that the NBA wouldn't be an outlandish destination for Montgomery, a coach who built a basketball powerhouse at one of the nation's most academically demanding universities but never broke through for a national title.

Former Stanford coach Mike Montgomery will be introduced as the new coach at California today, Cal Athletic Director Sandy Barbour announced. Coaching a former rival isn't unheard of: Rick Pitino was called a traitor when the onetime Kentucky coach accepted the Louisville job in 2001. Montgomery left Stanford in 2004 to coach the Golden State Warriors but was fired in 2006. He has been working as a television analyst and as an administrator in the Stanford athletic department.

BERKELEY, Calif. -- With the first official practice quickly approaching, the round table in Mike Montgomery's office is covered in paperwork. He's busy at it, scribbling away. Montgomery recently got rid of the row of red binders filled with basketball plays and practice routines and replaced them with blue folders, clearly more fitting for his new gig as coach at California. And a far cry from the Cardinal red that was an integral part of him for more than two decades in charge of the Stanford program.

Mike Montgomery was introduced as coach of the Golden State Warriors on Friday, the former Stanford leader quickly addressing the challenge he faces in making the jump to the NBA. Sounding much like Lon Kruger, Tim Floyd, Leonard Hamilton and John Calipari after they had left college coaching jobs for what turned out to be ill-fated runs at the pro level, Montgomery said he was excited about the players on his new team.

Maybe Stanford Coach Mike Montgomery will eventually take the time to savor his 400th career victory. Right now, he's too busy thinking about getting the next one. Peter Sauer scored a season-high 19 points and Kris Weems had 17 as the fifth-ranked Cardinal defeated Oregon State, 72-56, on Saturday at Maples Pavilion for Montgomery's milestone victory.

Does Mike Montgomery believe himself tactically superior to Steve Lavin in the same manner Stanford students believe themselves intellectually superior to UCLA students? Let's say there are subtle indications. Montgomery, the Stanford coach of 17 years, was sarcastic about UCLA's apparent lack of direction on offense moments after his team lost to the Bruins at Maples Pavilion last season for the third year in a row.

The man who hired Mike Montgomery at Stanford 18 years ago turned on his television the other day and had to laugh. There was Montgomery, doing one of those live-remote interviews, talking to a couple of guys in a studio as he sat in a chair on the Stanford campus. "They tried to get him all excited about being undefeated and the magnitude of it," said Andy Geiger, the former Stanford athletic director now at Ohio State. "And Mike was arguing with them, in his way.
