Former Tennessee quarterback Tee Martin is set to become the new wide receivers coach of the Baltimore Ravens according to multiple reports on Saturday afternoon. Martin just finished his second season on Rocky Top as the Vols’ wide receivers coach, passing game coordinator and associate head coach.

In his first coaching stint at Tennessee, Martin was instrumental in the development of Jauan Jennings, Marquez Callaway and Josh Palmer, helping them all become NFL wide receivers.

Martin returned to UT following a seven-year stint at USC, where he coached wide receivers since 2012 and added responsibilities as passing game coordinator in 2014 and offensive coordinator at the end of the 2015 season. He also has coached at Kentucky and New Mexico.

Martin coached 12 NFL Draft selections at USC and Kentucky, including current NFL wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster, Nelson AgholorMarqise Lee, Robert Woods and Randall Cobb, and New York Jets starting quarterback Sam Darnold.

Martin was named the 247Sports National Recruiter of the Year in 2016 and tabbed a semifinalist for the Broyles Award in 2017. He helped lead the Trojans to a Rose Bowl victory in 2016 and the Pac-12 Championship and a Cotton Bowl berth during the 2017 season.

The Mobile, Ala., native was a two-year starter at quarterback for UT, leading the Vols to a 13-0 season in 1998, culminating with a 23-16 win over Florida State in the Fiesta Bowl to capture the first BCS National Championship.

For his Tennessee career, Martin passed for 4,592 yards and 32 touchdowns. He added 614 yards and 16 scores on the ground. He finished with a 22-3 record as the Vols’ starting quarterback – an .880 winning percentage that remains the best in school history.
