Now in his 24th season as a member of The College of Wooster’s coaching staff, Bruce Martin continues to play a key role in the team’s success.
Martin’s dedication to the program, not to mention his knowledge of the game and his ability to teach the fundamentals, have had a profound effect on Wooster’s prosperity during the last 23 years (570-118).
Prior to coaching basketball at Wooster, Martin had spent 21 years teaching the game at a variety of levels in the West Holmes school system. Immediately after graduation from Adrian College in 1974, Martin became head coach of West Holmes’ junior high team. Ten seasons later, he began his 11-year tenure as head varsity coach at West Holmes High School, compiling a record of 128-111.
As a player, Martin had a distinguished career at Adrian. He was a three-year letterwinner with the Bulldogs and was a two-time all-Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association selection at guard.
Martin, who retired from teaching at West Holmes, resides in Millersburg with his wife, Pam. They have three daughters – Brittanie, Tara, and Elise, and four grandchildren.
