BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- California coach Mike Montgomery has 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 Golden Bears to a 24-10 record last season, a runner-up finish in the Pac-12 Conference and a first-round loss to South Florida in the NCAA tournament.

The former Montana, Stanford and Golden State Warriors coach is 88-47 in four seasons at Berkeley. He also helped Cal capture its first league title in 50 years in 2010.

Montgomery thanked the administration for the support and said his staff has "established a strong foundation of success and look forward to continuing to add to the rich tradition of this program."
