Brown coach Mike Martin dunks, has springs for legs

Martin showed his ability to get up before the team’s game Friday

NCAA Basketball: Brown at Southern Methodist Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Do you know how many college basketball coaches can dunk?

Me neither.

But one name on that probably short list is Brown University head coach Mike Martin.

Before the Bears’ 80-75 win over Dartmouth Friday, senior guard Tavon Blackmon posted this video on Twitter, showing off his coach’s jumping ability.

Martin played four years at Brown, and was a co-captain for his senior season in 2003-04. He averaged 11 points in his senior year for the Bears. He then played professionally in Ireland for one year before starting his coaching career.

Martin was inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in August of 2015 for his successful career at Brown.

While the Bears are having a lackluster season (12-15, 3-8 Ivy), they do have one thing going for them: their coach could probably put your coach on a poster.
