Along with offensive coordinator Clay Helton, Tee Martin is the only holdover from USC’s previous coaching staff.
2014 will be Martin’s third season as a member of the Trojan coaching staff and he will oversee the wide receivers and serve as the passing game coordinator.
Prior to joining the Trojans, Martin was the wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator at Kentucky for the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
Under Martin’s instruction at Kentucky, Wildcat wide receiver Kendall Cobb earned All-America honors in 2010.
Martin’s impact on the field at USC was largely seen in 2012 when helped coach Marqise Lee to the Biletnikoff Award. Lee set Pac-12 records in 2012 with 112 receptions and 1,680 receiving yards.
Along with being highly-regarded for his football acumen, Martin is also viewed as an ace recruiter. Martin’s ability to connect with prospects makes him invaluable and is likely a key reason for him being retained by Steve Sarkisian.
2014 will bring a new set of challenges as Martin will need to adjust to working with a new staff and will coaching a receiving corps without the presence of Lee.
