At East Carolina, Martin played a significant role in the development of quarterback David Garrard, who broke 28 school passing records and total offensive records from 1998-01. In addition, Martin coached the top three receivers in ECU history. During Martin's time at ECU, the team advanced to five bowl games; the Liberty Bowl in 1994 and 1995, the GMAC (formerly Mobile Alabama) Bowl in 1999 and 2001 and the Bowl in 2000.

Prior to joining the staff at East Carolina, Martin was a graduate assistant at the University of Kentucky, his alma mater, from 1986-87 and then spent the 1988-91 seasons at East Tennessee State University, where he coached the running backs his first year, then served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks/wide receivers coach his final three seasons.

Martin was a four-year letterwinner at Kentucky from 1981-84, spending time as a part-time starter at quarterback before injuries limited him to the holder role. A native of Oak Ridge, Tenn., Martin earned a bachelor's degree in history from Kentucky in 1985.

Martin and his wife Vicki have a daughter, Molly, and two sons, Cory and Bobby.
