PENN JUST FINISHED a season that exceeded nearly every expectation. The coaching staff got about everything imaginable out of the team. And the timing could not have been better for assistant Mike Martin.
Martin, a 4-year starter at Brown, a 2004 graduate and part of the winningest class in school history (63-45), will be introduced as his alma mater's head coach at a news conference Friday.
Martin came to Penn 6 years ago with Glen Miller, his college coach. Miller's regime did not work out and he was let go in December 2009. Interestingly, his entire staff have become head coaches.
