ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — 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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
