Martinez takes over as the Warriors’ head coach for the 2015 campaign. He comes to Midland after guiding William Penn University to a 17-15-6 combined record over the past two seasons. Martinez served as a graduate assistant coach for the program for one year before being named the head coach in July 2013.
Martinez guided Midland to its fifth straight GPAC postseason tournament appearance in 2015. During his first season at Midland he posted a 14-4-2 record which saw the Warriors break the program record with nine consecutive wins.
In his first year at William Penn, Martinez guided the Statesman to a 10-8-2 record and an appearance in the conference tournament semifinals in 2013. It was William Penn's first winning season in 10 years, and the Statesman came one win shy of tying the school record for wins in a single season. In 2014 he led William Penn to the program's highest finish in nearly a decade, placing third in the regular season standings.
Martinez holds a National "B" Coaching License from the United States Soccer Federation which is a course designed to introduce concepts that are targeted toward coaching young adults. A primary emphasis of the license is the close relationship between technique and tactics.
As a collegiate athlete at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, Martinez was a two-time First Team All-Summit League defensive selection and was named to the Summit League's All-Newcomer Team in his first season.
While in college, Martinez also played for the Fort Wayne Fever of the Professional Developmental League in 2009.
A native of Portage, Indiana, Martinez holds a bachelor's degree in general studies from IPFW with minors in communication and organizational leadership and supervisor. He went on to earn his Master’s of Business Leadership while at William Penn.
