The Baltimore Ravens have moved assistant coach Tee Martin to the role of quarterbacks coach after he spent the past two seasons working with the club’s receivers.

The 44-year-old was a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for two seasons (2004-05) during which he completed 40-of-95 pass attempts for 458 yards, one touchdown, and four interceptions. He also rushed 13 times for 64 yards.

The six-foot-two, 225-pound passer was a star at the University of Tennessee where he threw for 4,592 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions, helping the Volunteers win a BCS National Championship in 1998. He was drafted in the fifth round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers but saw minimal action before stints with the Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders, and NFL Europe.

Martin started his coaching career at Morehouse College in 2006. He moved on to North Cobb High School, North Atlanta High School, the University of New Mexico, and the University of Kentucky ahead of a seven-year stint at USC.

The native of Mobile, Ala. rejoined his alma mater in 2019 as Tennessee’s assistant head coach and receivers coach where he worked with Brampton, Ont. native Josh Palmer. Palmer was selected in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Chargers and has since caught 105 passes for 1,122 yards and seven touchdowns over 33 career games.

The Ravens finished 10-7 this past season, placing second in the AFC North ahead of a 24-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round. Dual-threat franchise quarterback Lamar Jackson remains a pending free agent after playing this past season under his fifth-year option.
