College Football: Tee Martin, “I promised Coach Kiffin…”

USC WR coach, Tee Martin, has turned down an offer to return to his alma mater.

Tee Martin has made a decision about his coaching future and he will remain at Southern California.

“I was very honored to be offered a position on Coach Jones’ Tennessee staff,” Martin said in a statement posted on school’s website. “I truly believe he will do an outstanding job with the Vols program. My decision to remain at USC was the toughest I have ever had to make because Tennessee is such a special place to me.

“At the end of the day, I am a man of my word. I promised Coach Kiffin when I was hired at USC that I had goals I wanted to accomplish here. We still have work to do here to reach those goals. I see a great future at USC with the players on our roster and the recruits we have coming in.

Hmmm, somehow you have to love the irony here: a Tennessee alum being loyal to the man who left his alma mater for his “dream job”. That’s goof stuff right there.

I guess there really weren’t any hard feelings.
