Liberty High School athletic director Stark Porter announced Monday that John Martin has been hired to be the Patriots’ new head baseball coach.

Martin was a pitching coach at Liberty for several seasons. He was on the staff when Liberty won the 3A state title in 2003.

Among his prized pitchers that season was future Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants.

Martin has spent the past few years as an assistant coach at Auburn Mountainview. He has also coached summer select baseball teams.

Martin replaces Steve Darnell, who directed Liberty to a 6-8 record last season. The Patriots were knocked out in the first round of the KingCo Conference 3A tournament.
