Martin, who served as the Irish’s offensive coordinator the past two seasons, came to Notre Dame following an impressive run as head coach at Grand Valley State. In six seasons leading the Lakers, he was 74-7 and won two Division II national championships.

Martin was defensive coordinator for Brian Kelly at Grand Valley State before becoming head coach. Kelly initially hired him at Notre Dame to work as defensive backs coach in 2010 and 2011 before moving to offense in 2012.

Miami finished 0-12 this season after going 4-8 the previous year.
