Despite not making it to the finals of the College World Series, the performance of the Florida State baseball team this season was good enough that the university is going to reward Martin with a three-year contract extension, according to a tweet by Paul Thomas of Warchant.com.

The contract extension will be good through 2015. In a season that many outsiders thought would be a rebuilding year, Martin lead the Seminoles to their 33rd straight appearance in the NCAA Baseball Tournament and their 24th season under Martin with 50 wins or more. They also set an ACC baseball record with 24 conference victories. All of this led the Seminoles to the No. 3 overall seed in the NCAA Baseball Tournament and Martin was named ACC coach of the year.
Martin has been a part of the team through 40 of the 65 years of its existence, being a part of over 2,700 games and has an overall winning percentage as a player, assistant or head coach of 75.9%.
