Josh Martin enters his first season on the Arizona State coaching staff as assistant coach, working with the running backs. He spent last season on the Sun Devil Staff as an offensive graduate assistant.
Martin worked closely with the offensive line last season, where he worked with First Team All-Pac-12 left guard Jamil Douglas and Second Team All-Pac-12 center Nick Kelly. The combination of Douglas and Kelly paved the way for D.J Foster to record a 1,000-yard rushing campaign and played a pivotal role in the Sun Devil offense recording a 91-percent conversion rate on red zone trips (12th in the nation) and scoring 37 points per game (16th in nation.) Douglas would go on to be drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Martin spent two years with Tarleton State University, his alma mater, as the offensive line coach prior to arrive at Arizona State. Tarleton State split the Division II Lone Star Conference championship in 2013 and finished third in the conference in 2012 with Martin on the staff.
Martin’s offensive line at TSU helped post an impressive 222.0 yards per game in 2013, good for third in the Lone Star Conference and 176.10 yards per game in 2012 that was also third in the conference. The 2012 squad allowed just 1.5 sacks per game, also good for third in the conference.
Prior to that, he spent time at Texas Tech University as an assistant with the offensive and defensive lines.
Martin was a three-year starter at offensive guard and tackle at Tarleton State and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise and Sports Studies.
