Martin tells newspaper he's headed to Kentucky

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Tee Martin, who led Tennessee to an
undefeated national championship in 1998, has resigned after one
season as New Mexico quarterbacks coach.
Martin told the Albuquerque Journal he's taking a job as
receivers coach at Kentucky, where he's eager to work with newly
hired coach Joker Phillips. Martin played at Tennessee under
Kentucky's offensive coordinator, Randy Sanders.
Martin also says he's looking forward to being back in the
Southeastern Conference.
A Kentucky spokesman didn't immediately confirm the hiring.
New Mexico coach Mike Locksley said in a news release Thursday
that losing good coaches is a part of college football. He says
Martin did a great job with the Lobos, who were 1-11 last fall.
Martin helped Locksley implement a spread offense that accounted
for 2,581 yards passing and 13 touchdowns.
