[MEN'S COACHING CHANGES] Five Division I men's programs in California will have new head coaches in 2014. For all the men's head coaching moves.

In a game of musical chairs, Simon Tobin left CSU Bakersfield for San Jose State after Gary St. Clair retired, and Richie Grant left Memphis to replace Tobin in Bakersfield. George Kuntz moved across Orange County from UC Irvine to Big West rival Cal State Fullerton after Bob Ammann's contract was not renewed. Following Eric Visser's resignation at San Francisco, Eddie Soto took charge of the Dons.
