Morgantown, West Virginia – Kerry Martin, Jr., the sophomore defensive back for the West Virginia Mountaineers, was at the center of one of the largest scandals in West Virginia football program history this past offseason when he publicly accused former defensive coordinator Vic Koenning of “mistreatment” and “insensitive comments.”
Koenning, the long-time defensive coordinator under Head Coach Neal Brown, was investigated and “mutually separated” from the university following the investigation.
Kerry Martin redshirted this season citing health concerns and promised that he would be back with the Mountaineers next season. Although there has been speculation that he would transfer, Martin confirmed again that he will be back for his sophomore season.
FOR THE THIRD TIME… I am NOT leaving stop asking me. Thank you lol

Martin added to an already-outstanding defense will make the West Virginia a force to reckon with in the Big 12 Conference next season.
