Florida State is parting ways with head baseball coach Mike Martin Jr., the program announced on Friday afternoon.

The decision was made by FSU athletic director Michael Alford. Martin was in charge of the Seminoles for the past 3 seasons.

“Making the change with our baseball coach was not an easy decision, but it is our responsibility to put our student-athletes and our teams in the best position to reach their full potential,” Alford said in a press release. “Ultimately, the decision came down to whether our baseball program was performing up to the admittedly high standards that we have established through our historic success and I do not believe we were.”

Although Martin’s tenure as FSU’s head coach was relatively short, his service to the program was not. He was a coach in Tallahassee for 25 years and also played for the Seminoles in the 1990s.

He took over for his father, Mike Martin Sr., who led the Seminoles from 1980-2019.

Martin went 77-54 in 3 seasons as FSU’s head coach but never made it out of the regional stage of the NCAA Tournament. Florida State was one of the last at-large selections for the 2022 NCAA Tournament.

Florida State is expected to begin a national search for its next head coach immediately and figures to be one of the top open jobs on the market.
