KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -

Former Vols coach Cuonzo Martin did his first public interview Thursday with Hallerin Hilton Hill of News Talk 98.7. He answered questions about why he left Tennessee.

Martin said it was never about money or even the petition with 30,000 plus signatures calling for his job. It was simply time to move on, he explained.

Martin said he addressed the team before he was fired and said that Tennessee was the place that his players needed to be.

The Vols coaching search continues as Martin was finalizing his move from Knoxville Thursday morning.
