we drafted him. the next qb taken in his draft class was tom brady.

he supposedly was better than p. manning cause he was actually able to win a national championship.

he proved his worth when (as a steeler) he choked in the nfl europe champ game for the rhein fire.

he was cut and now probably holds down a lucrative job washing tommy maddox's car and mowing his lawn.

Martin coached at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. He helped lead the Maroon Tigers to the number 1 offense in their division. Currently, Martin is the Quarterback coach at North Cobb High School in Kennesaw, GA. His nickname is pronounced "T-EE" not "T-AY" as some gather from his given name Tamaurice. Tamaurice married Latoya Rodriguez on November 3, 2005 and they have a son together, Kaden Martin. They reside in Atlanta, GA.

Professional career

Tee Martin is the former University of Tennessee quarterback who led the Volunteers to an undefeated 13-0 season on their way to back-to-back SEC titles and the 1998 National Championship. He holds the Tennessee record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 17 and ranks 6th on the All Time list of total yards in just two years as a starter.

Tee Martin was drafted in the fifth round by the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2004 Martin retired as an Oakland Raider after four NFL seasons. Martin also spent one season in the NFL Europe league. During the 2002 season, he led the Rhein Fire to a league best 7-3 record. The Fire lost in the World Bowl, falling 20-26 to the Berlin Thunder.

Martin currently own Playmakers Sports,a company specializing in sports event planning, quarterback training, and skills development and is also a college football expert on Comcast Sports Southeast program Talkin' Football.

He is a quarterback coach for the Nike Elite 11 Quarterback Camps, Nike Football Training Camps, and has trained many Division 1 and professional quarterbacks. Martin can be reached via website www.Playmakers-Sports.com

College career

While a junior at the University of Tennessee in 1998, Martin led the 1998 Tennessee Volunteers football team to a 13-0 record and a Fiesta Bowl victory over Florida State University, as the school won its first NCAA Division I-A national football championship since 1951. This was also the second time Tennessee had been considered the consensus national champion, with the other NCAA Consensus National Championship being in 1951. Four other NCAA Division I-A national football championship seasons are recognized by the NCAA (1938, 1940, 1950, and 1967), but are not consensus. Before his final two seasons, Martin was a backup to Peyton Manning. He was also teammates with running back Jamal Lewis in his early years at Tennessee and Peerless Price each who would go on to play in the NFL.

Also, in the 1998 season, Martin broke the NCAA record for consecutive completions. Against South Carolina Martin completed his first 23 passes. Combined with a completion the previous week against Alabama, Martin's string of 24 completions set the new record.

Martin's role on the national championship team caused a minor controversy on the University of Tennessee campus; some Knoxville, Tennessee African-American leaders said that since Peyton Manning, who did not win a championship, had had a street named after him after leaving the university, not considering the same for Martin would be racism. In response, South Stadium Drive was renamed Tee Martin Drive.

In 1999, Martin led the Vols to their third consecutive Bowl Championship Series|BCS] bowl. During Martin's 2 years as a starter at Tennessee, the Vols were undefeated against 4 of his main conference rivals.(2-0 vs Alabama, 2-0 vs Auburn, 2-0 vs Georgia, 2-0 vs Kentucky, and Beat Florida)

I think he was drafted in that new football league. However, they suspended this season for money reason. I think the Tennessee team drafted him.
