Reports: Tee Martin turns down Vols' offer

December, 11, 2012
USC wide receivers coach Tee Martin turned down a job offer from the University of Tennessee, according to multiple reports.

Martin had been offered a job as wide receivers coach for the Volunteers on Sunday and then had flown to meet new coach Butch Jones on Monday to discuss the position.

There was a lot of fan enthusiasm in Knoxville at the prospect of Martin returning. As Tennessee's quarterback, he led the Vols to a national championship in 1998 and is considered a bright young coach.

Martin flew back to Los Angeles on Tuesday morning without having made a decision about his future plans.

“Emotionally everyone should know how I feel, but this isn't an emotional decision. It's a career decision," Martin told before boarding his flight.

By staying with the Trojans, Martin will once again have the opportunity to coach Marqise Lee -- the reigning Biletnikoff Award winner -- along with the possibility of Robert Woods returning for his senior year.
