    Position:
    Assistant Coach (Throws)


    Cory Martin, who will be an assistant coach and work with the throwers group, is one of the elite shot put throwers in the world, currently holding the No 16 spot on the all-time world performance list (22.10m/72-6.25). Martin was the runner-up at the 2013 USA Indoor Championships and qualified for the World Outdoor Championship in Moscow.

    Martin, a native of Bloomington, Ind., was a nine-time All-American at Auburn, including National Championships in 2008 in the shot put (20.35m/66-9.25) and hammer throw (74.13m/243-2.5). Martin has been a volunteer coach for Indiana for the past two seasons.

    "I think Cory's experience as both a state champion, an NCAA Champion and being ranked in the top-10 in the world, gives him a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the throws and what it takes to be successful there," IU head coach Ron Helmer said. "His interactions with a number of high level coaches adds to his knowledge and I think he can use that knowledge to achieve results as a young coach and I'm confident he will do that."
