Early life and education

Born and raised in Park Forest, Illinois in an Irish Catholic family, Martin graduated from Rich East High School in 1986. Martin attended Division III Millikin University and played both football and basketball. On the football team, Martin earned All-American honors as a safety and all-conference honors as a placekicker. Martin played at guard on the Millikin basketball team and averaged 9.6 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 4.2 assists as a senior.

Coaching career

From 2005 to 2009, Martin's Lakers football team did not lose a regular season game, and only lost two post-season games at the end of the 2007 and 2008 seasons, setting a record for consecutive wins, 48, breaking the previous mark of 29 games also set by the Lakers spanning from 2000 to 2003 by then head coach, Brian Kelly.

From 2005 to 2007, the Lakers under Martin set an all-time NCAA Division II record with 40 consecutive wins, breaking a half-century old mark set by in-state and in-conference rival Hillsdale College.

Martin was the offensive coordinator at Notre Dame for the 2012 season, where the Fighting Irish finished the regular season with a 12–0 record and a berth in the BCS National Championship Game.

On December 3, 2013, it was announced that Martin would be leaving his position at Notre Dame to take over as the head coach at Miami University for the 2014 season.
