Doug Martin, the former head coach and offensive coordinator for the Kent State Golden Flashes football team, has been hired by the Boston College Eagles to be the new football offensive coordinator, according to an announcement from BC.
Martin coached at Kent State from 2004 through 2010 and was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at New Mexico this past season. Martin played a big role in the development of Kent State football during his seven seasons as head coach and eight years as offensive coordinator. From 2007 through 2010, a total of 20 Golden Flashes made the All-Mid American Conference team.
Martin will replace Don Brock, the Eagles' tight ends coach who took over for Kevin Rogers early in the 2011 season after a mystery illness that was never disclosed.
