Man, this must burn the Vols.
"''I was very honored to be offered a position on Coach Jones' Tennessee staff,'' Martin said in a statement posted on school's website. ''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."
