The ACC released a statement Thursday from Commissioner Jim Phillips, Ph.D. on the passing of Mike Martin:

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Mike Martin, an incredible man who had a profound impact on countless individuals throughout his amazing life. There is no way to ever replace the man simply known as ‘11’ – the winningest coach in NCAA baseball history, a Hall of Famer and a giant within the ACC and college athletics.

“For as decorated as he was for his accomplishments as a coach, I will always remember Mike’s passion and devotion to his players, his faith, and most importantly, his treasured family. Our thoughts and prayers will remain with his beloved wife Carol, his three children – Mike Jr., Mary Beth, and Melanie – and the entire Martin family.”
