Chuck Martin (born January 8, 1968) is an American football coach and former player. He is currently the head coach at Miami University and was previously the offensive coordinator at the University of Notre Dame. Martin was the head coach at Grand Valley State University from 2004 to 2009, compiling a record of 74–7. His Grand Valley State Lakers won consecutive NCAA Division II National Football Championships in 2005 and 2006 and were runners-up in 2009.

Coaching career[edit]

From 2005 to 2009, Martin's Lakers football team did not lose a regular season game, and only lost two post-season games at the end of the 2007 and 2008 seasons, setting a record for consecutive wins, 48, breaking the previous mark of 29 games also set by the Lakers spanning from 2000 to 2003 by then head coach, Brian Kelly.

From 2005 to 2007, the Lakers under Martin set an all-time NCAA Division II record with 40 consecutive wins, breaking a half-century old mark set by in-state and in-conference rival Hillsdale College.

Martin was the offensive coordinator at Notre Dame for the 2012 season, where the Fighting Irish finished the regular season with a 12-0 record and a berth in the BCS National Championship Game.

On December 3, 2013, it was announced that Martin would be leaving his position at Notre Dame to take over as the head coach at Miami University for the 2014 season.[1]
