“This is a great opportunity to be a part of a storied program and tremendous coaching staff here at Auburn,” Martinez said. “I’ve had the pleasure to know Coach Chizik and other members of this staff for a long time and I share their energy and passion for the game of football and developing young men. I’m appreciative of this opportunity and look forward to helping Auburn win championships in the future.”
