Former Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez apparently is in high demand.
Rivals.com this morning reports that Martinez has accepted an assistant coaching job at Oklahoma several days after reportedly accepting a similar job at Stanford.
Here’s the latest report from national football writer Tom Dienhart:
Willie Martinez has accepted an assistant coaching job at Oklahoma, Rivals.com has learned.
Martinez recently took a position as secondary coach at Stanford, but he has had a change of heart. Martinez coached defensive backs for nine seasons at Georgia and was defensive coordinator for five years in Athens before being fired after last season.
Oklahoma hasn’t announced a hire of Martinez.
An opening was created on head coach Bob Stoops‘ Oklahoma staff when defensive ends coach and special teams coordinator Chris Wilson left to become the co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach at Mississippi State.
Because Martinez’s background is in coaching defensive backs, The Oklahoman newspaper notes on its Website this morning: “It’s unclear what position group he’ll coach in Norman if the report is true.”
