Miami is coming off a disappointing season, one that began in the preseason top 10 and ended with a blowout loss in the Pinstripe Bowl. When that happens, changes are often made.

According to a report from the Miami Herald, Miami head coach Mark Richt is considering any and all changes to his offensive staff, including potentially changing coordinators. If he wants to do so, a big name reportedly would be interested in the gig.

According to Andy Slater, recently dismissed USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin wants to be the OC at Miami. Martin reportedly holds offers from Georgia Tech and Louisville, but prefers the 'Canes.

Martin was a staff member at USC from 2012 until this fall. He served as the offensive coordinator from 2016-18.

USC head coach Clay Helton revoked Martin's playcalling duties during this season and eventually let him go in November.

Prior to coming to USC, Martin served as an assistant coach at Kentucky for two seasons and at New Mexico for one. In his playing days, he was a star quarterback at Tennessee.

Martin led the Vols to the BCS national championship in 1998 before embarking on a brief pro career in the NFL, CFL and NFL Europe.
