Another member of Jeremy Pruitt’s 2020 Tennessee staff has officially moved on. Tee Martin, Tennessee’s receivers coach and former national championship winning quarterback, has accepted a job with the Baltimore Ravens. Martin will continue to coach wide receivers, now at the pro level.

Martin joined Tennessee in 2019, spending two seasons at his alma mater. His contract ran through the end of the 2020 season — the end of January to be exact, but was not renewed by new head coach Josh Heupel.
Heupel is expected to add Kodi Burns as his receivers coach at Tennessee. Burns was hired by Heupel at UCF this offseason before he took the job in Knoxville.
Martin has now spent time as a receivers coach at Kentucky, USC and Tennessee. He was co-offensive coordinator at USC from 2016-2018. Martin now leaps to the professional ranks, with his college options likely limited due to the late timing of the Tennessee coaching change.
He will inherit one of the worst wide receiver units in the NFL, with Marquise Brown, Devin Duvernay and Miles Boykin under contract for the 2021 season. Expect Baltimore to target receivers in free agency and the draft, giving Tee something to work with in his first stint in the NFL coaching ranks.
