Good read on the man.
From this article...

"Martin had every intention of accepting a scholarship from the University of Illinois, the only school he was considering. But when the Deon Thomas recruiting controversy made headlines in the summer of 1990, it appeared Illinois would be penalized."

So we hired a man that was deterred from going to Illinois by the scandal Pearl revealed. Not quite irony, but an interesting fact nonetheless.

Martin has some big recruits that he is in on and is said to be a tireless recruiter and coaches with a lot of energy.

Purdue head coach Matt Painter has emerged as the No. 1 target to replace Mike Anderson at Missouri, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, despite the 40-year-old having just signed an eight-year extension to remain at his alma mater.

Painter did get an out clause in the deal and could get a significant raise from the $1.3 million per season he's making at Purdue. Missouri offered Anderson $2 million annually before he bolted for Arkansas earlier this week.

If Painter leaves, Purdue will quickly become one of the best job openings in the country, with assistants Paul Lusk, Jack Owens and Mike Jackson on the short list.

The one time that he had a team that could have realistically broken through was in '94, when he got to a regional final with Glenn Robinson and our new coach, and then Robinson got hurt in the game before they had to go play Duke and Grant Hill.

If we're going to hire out of someone's coaching tree, I have no problem with trying Gene Keady's.

Like alot of other people on here...I really don't know anything about him. But, he is UT's head coach and I am excited about his pedigree for sure. I hope that that this makes our recruits feel better...and it will be interesting to see what Tobias dad comes out and says. Welcome to our new coach.

The only two Purdue teams that might have underachieved in the postseason were '88 and '94. They were a 1 or 2 seed a couple of times with 8 or 9 seed personnel.

Actually, he is UT's head coach. Announced a few hours ago.

I now live in Missouri and follow Mizzou as my second team. Missouri was never going to hire Coach Martin. (Read St Louis Post Dispatch Sports Page) What big recruits? His Missouri State teams were average at best.

If you're looking for quality athletes in the mid-west then it's a good thing. Otherwise, not so much.

Hammy didn't open up the checkbook too much to ensure that upon his departure there would still be a nice chunk for his parting gift/buyout..

that being said..I am not at all impressed with this hire, i feel we could have done better , but as always time will tell. I think i read somewhere that we now have the only coach in the SEC who hasn't taken a squad to the NCAA tournamet, is that correct?
