Martin leaving Kentucky for Southern California

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Wide receivers coach Tee Martin is leaving
Kentucky to take a similar position at Southern California.

Kentucky coach Joker Phillips says in a statement that he wishes
Martin well and appreciates the contributions Martin made over the
last two years. Martin informed Phillips late Wednesday night he
was accepting the job on Lane Kiffin's staff.

Martin was picked as one of the top 25 recruiters in the nation
by Rivals.com in 2011.

Martin led Tennessee to the 1998 national championship and was
drafted in the fifth round by Pittsburgh in 2000. He spent three
years in the NFL and two more in the Canadian Football League
before turning to coaching in 2006.
