USC receivers coach Tee Martin, who was offered a job at Tennessee, will remain with the Trojans.
Martin, 34, played quarterback for Tennessee’s 1998 national championship team and had traveled with his family to Knoxville, Tenn., on Monday after new Coach Butch Jones offered him a job last weekend.
"I was very honored to be offered a position on Coach Jones' Tennessee staff,” Martin said in a statement. “I truly believe he will do an outstanding job with the Vols program. My decision to remain at USC was the toughest I have ever had to make because Tennessee is such a special place to me.
"At the end of the day, I am a man of my word. I promised Coach Kiffin when I was hired at USC that I had goals I wanted to accomplish here. We still have work to do here to reach those goals. I see a great future at USC with the players on our roster and the recruits we have coming in.
