Looks like "11" isn't thinking about retirement any time soon. Martin's new deal runs through June 2015 with a base salary of $231,750. He also gets $103,250 for radio compensation and $100,000 for speaking engagements and PR stuff.
And it would have him coaching into his 70s.
Here's the release from FSU:
Florida State University Director of Athletics Randy Spetman announced today that head baseball coach Mike Martin has agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension that will take the Hall of Fame coach through the 2015 season.
Martin completed his 33rd season as the Seminoles’ head coach in 2012 leading Florida State back to the College World Series for the third time in the last five years, a 50-win season and a top four finish.
“I love this university and I am excited about what the future holds for this program,” said Martin.
“We are very pleased to be able to keep coach Martin in the same position he has been in for more than three decades,” said Spetman. “Our baseball program not only consistently wins but also excels in the classroom. Not only did this year’s team make it to the semifinals of the World Series but they placed a school record and ACC-leading nine student-athletes on the All-ACC Academic team. With his contract ending June 30, we moved quickly to continue the consistency at the top of our program we have enjoyed since 1980.”
