Perhaps the most important quality that Martinez brought, though, was his leadership. He is the only three-time captain in program history.

But his legacy is not without controversy. During Martinez's time in Lincoln, the Huskers finished with losing records and failed to make the bowl season each year.

Martinez is the second scholarship player to enter the portal since the end of the season.
