Frank Martin has compiled a wealth of coaching knowledge during the past two decades.
Martin, who coaches the Bearcat big men, also has valuable recruiting ties, having spent four seasons at Northeastern University, in the footprint of the BIG EAST Conference, and 16 years coaching high school basketball in talent-rich Florida.
Martin, who joined the Cincinnati staff in 2004, earned a name for himself for his efforts as a recruiter at Northeastern during the previous four seasons. His work helped the Huskies post a 19-11 record in 2003-04, the school's best in 11 years.
Martin's teams dominated the Miami prep basketball scene during his seven seasons as a head coach on the high school level.
He directed Miami Senior High to three consecutive Florida 6A state championships and a 102-10 record in four seasons there (1995-99). During that time, he developed 14 players who went on to play in the NCAA Division I ranks, including present NBA players Udonis Haslem and Steve Blake.
In 1999-00, Martin became head coach at Booker T. Washington High, and his efforts enabled the first-year high school to garner Nike Elite honors, one of only 15 schools to earn that honor that season.
