And the coaching trio is finally complete. USC has filled its third coaching vacancy with former Kentucky wide receivers coach Tee Martin, announced by USC's Matt Barkley and confirmed by Scout.

The quarterback wrote on Twitter "Excited to welcome @TeeMartin17 to the Trojan Family as our new WR coach! Gonna be a great year!"

Scout's Greg Biggins spoke to Martin, who said, "I'll be back in L.A on Friday, I'm fired up and ready to go.

"I can see why Lane is the best recruiter in the country, as of Tuesday I was staying at UK, he was relentless and made me feel comfortable."

Martin, a former quarterback in the NFL and for the Tennessee Volunteers, served as the Wildcats' passing game coordinator and receivers coach the past two seasons. He spent a brief time as a football analyst, including a weekly radio show called "Hot Tee and Touchdowns" on ESPN's Atlanta affiliate.

Martin will coach perhaps the nation's best receiving core in 2012, one that includes Biletnikoff finalist Robert Woods, Pac-12 Freshman of the Year Marqise Lee, five-star recruit George Farmer, among others.

He was named one of ESPN.com's top-25 recruiters as a coach at Kentucky.
