According to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports, the USC Trojans have a new offensive coordinator, and he’s coming in-house via a promotion.
The new offensive coordinator is none other than wide receivers coach Tee Martin, per the FOX sports reporter:

“I am fortunate to have been around many good coaches throughout my career, but I have never been around a coach quite as complete as Tee Martin,” new head coach Clay Helton said via the USC football website. “He has a unique ability to lead, organize, recruit, teach, game plan and call plays. In the second half of this season, Tee took on a greater coordinating role in game planning and play calling and I was very impressed with the job he did. I am beyond confident in his ability to lead our offense to new heights.”
Martin, who’s 37 years old, has been with the Trojans since 2012. He came on as the wide receivers coach and was also the passing game coordinator in 2014 and 2015.
This is the second time Martin will be an offensive coordinator, though it’s worth noting that the first time was at the high school level back in 2008. Martin was the offensive coordinator at North Atlanta High School before becoming the quarterbacks coach at New Mexico in 2009.
Before coming to USC, Martin coached wide receivers for Kentucky in 2010, and added passing game coordinator responsibilities with the Wildcats in 2011.
