Head Coach, Women's Basketball
Kirk Martin has been the head women's basketball coach at Cedarville University since the 2001-02 season. After building the Lady Jackets into one of the top NAIA programs in the country, he turns his attention to the school's first year in NCAA Division II.
Martin's teams have averaged 26.6 wins per season during his tenure. CU has amassed one NCCAA title, two NAIA Division II national runner-up finishes, and six conference championships.
Cedarville posted a 24-8 mark during its NCAA provisional year in 2011-12. The Jackets were the NCCAA runner-up after winning the Midwest Region banner and they also claimed the Ohio Independent Championship title.
CU made its eighth and final appearance at the 2011 NAIA Division II National Tournament which featured a surprising run to the quarterfinals. The Lady Jackets knocked off perennial powers Saint Francis (Ind.) and Ozarks before losing to unbeaten Davenport to finish the season 24-10.
Martin guided Cedarville to five straight NAIA national tournament appearances from 2003 through 2007 including back-to-back runner-up finishes in 2004 and 2005. The Jackets ended up with a 17-8 record at the event with a semifinals achievement in 2007, quarterfinals efforts in 2006 and 2011, and two second round showings.
Martin's club owned American Mideast Conference titles from 2003 through 2007 assembling an 86-4 record during that time span. CU ran off three straight undefeated league campaigns in the AMC South Division from 2004 through 2006 which included a conference-record 72-game winning streak.
