NOTRE DAME, Ind. — Glenn and Stacey Murphy Head Men’s Basketball Coach Mike Brey has announced the addition of Scott Martin (2008-13) to the University of Notre Dame men’s basketball staff for the 2019-20 season.
Martin, the 2012 Notre Dame Monogram Club Team Most Valuable Player, will serve as the team’s development and recruiting coordinator, which is a re-branded position taking over the staff spot formerly occupied by video coordinator Eric Atkins. Atkins recently took a full-time assistant coach position at Howard University.
“Scott has a great feel for the game and our program,” Brey said. “We talked often about his future as a coach when he was a player. After his professional career, he tried the business world for a year but has decided to return to his passion for basketball. He brings a knowledge of our program to this job, as well as strong communication skills and a great basketball I.Q.”
Martin will help support the program’s recruiting strategy, aide in the day-to-day operations of the team and provide team-specific video support.
“I am thrilled to be back home at Notre Dame and once again be a part of the basketball program,” Martin said. “I’m thankful for the opportunity to continue to learn from Coach Brey and look forward to doing whatever I can to help and contribute to the continued success of the program.”
Martin started his collegiate career at Purdue University before transferring to Notre Dame for the 2008-09 season. After sitting out the season as a transfer, he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during a preseason workout in October 2009. After missing the 2009-10 season while recovering from his injury, the Valparaiso, Indiana, native started his next 66 games for the Irish during his sophomore and junior eligibility seasons.
