Mike Martin given 3-year extension
The 68-year-old Seminole baseball coach will have another three seasons to try and get that elusive first national championship
Florida State's Mike Martin isn't heading for a rocking chair anytime soon.
The 68-year-old Seminole baseball coach will have another three seasons to try and get that elusive first national championship. He's done just about everything else along the way with 1,723 career victories and 15 of the school's 21 appearances at the College World Series. The Seminoles were eliminated this season by eventual champion Arizona.
Florida State athletic director Randy Spetman said Friday that Martin has agreed to a three-year contract extension that keeps him at the university through the 2015 season when he would be 71.
Martin has been Florida State's head coach for 33 years.
