More Bears on the way?

New Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin is expected to hire at least one of his Missouri State assistants as part of his initial Vol staff. Here's a look at the men who helped guide the 2010-11 Bears:

Jon Harris: A native of Edwardsville, Ill., Harris graduated from Marquette in 2002. He captained the team as a junior and senior. He assisted at Marquette for one year, where he worked with Dwayne Wade and helped the team go 26-7. Harris then spent five years as an aide at Wisconsin-Green Bay (2003-08) and the past three seasons at Missouri State. He's a good bet to join the Vol staff unless he is chosen to succeed Cuonzo Martin as MSU's head coach.

Kent Williams: A native of Mt. Vernon, Ill., he graduated from Southern Illinois in 2003. Williams led the team in scoring all four seasons and ranks No. 2 on the program's all-time scoring list with 2,012 career points. He served as Supervisor of Basketball Operations at Purdue from 2005-2008 before taking his current job at Missouri State.

Steve Woodberry: A native of Wichita, he graduated from Kansas in 1994. He was voted team MVP as a senior. Woodberry played for two NCAA Final Four teams under Roy Williams, then spent 10 years playing professionally overseas. He retired in 2005 and has been assisting at Missouri State since 2006.

Trevyor Fisher: A native of Springfield, Mo., he graduated from his hometown school, Missouri State, in 2005. A three-time honorable mention Missouri Valley Conference All-Academic pick, he served as MSU's co-captain as a senior. He has been Missouri State's Director of Basketball Operations since 2005.
