Marquez Callaway – Noteworthy
It hasn’t been Tee Martin’s success at developing receivers that has piqued the interest of Tennessee’s two seniors at the position, Marquez Callaway and Jauan Jennings. It’s where he got as a player at Tennessee that has more of their attention. “He’s been here,” Jennings said recently, adding that he was going to ask Martin to bring his 1998 national championship ring to the next team meeting. “He’s done what we want to accomplish, so I’m going to soak in all the information he gives me.” Added Callaway: “Having him here is everything you’d expect. Having a former Vol come back and coach us, it’s exciting to have him back. His atmosphere, his name, his title. Everybody is happy around him, and we’re happy to have him.”

Martin’s return to Tennessee after spending the past 10 years as an assistant at New Mexico, Kentucky and the University of Southern California was met with nothing but praise. The quarterback of the Volunteers’ most recent national championship team spent the past seven years at USC, mainly working with receivers but spending the past three seasons as co-offensive coordinator. Having played quarterback throughout his career, he has been able to provide a unique perspective to his position group about what the signal-caller is looking for on a play. – Chattanooga Times Free Press
