Florida State assistant coach Mike Martin, Jr. was named the ninth head baseball coach in FSU history. On Friday of last week, Florida State Director of Athletics David Coburn made the announcement after the ’Noles season came to an end in Omaha. Martin Jr. became the first new head baseball coach the Seminoles have hired since 1980, a role his father held for 40 years before him.
Following Mike Martin Jr.s hiring, some fans voiced their concerns over the hire and RaysnNoles took the time to address them.
Martin Jr. will meet with the media this afternoon Monday, June 24 at 3:30 p.m. and be available to answer questions for the first time as Florida State’s head baseball coach.
