Chuck Martin (born in Dodge City, Kansas) is an American college basketball coach and former head men's basketball coach at Marist College. On April 17, 2008, Martin was introduced as Marist's sixth head coach in its Division I history and ninth in program history. He replaced Matt Brady, who became the head coach at James Madison University. Martin came to Marist after having spent the 2006-08 seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Memphis. The Tigers reached the national championship game in the 2007-08 season, and set a single-season Division I record for most victories with 38. The previous year, Memphis went 33-4 and reached the Elite Eight. The Tigers also became the first team in the history of Conference USA to compile a perfect regular season while winning the conference tournament.
In his first season at Marist, Martin guided the Red Foxes to 10 victories. Marist set a program record for fewest points allowed to a Division I opponent in a 57-35 win over Hartford, and also set a MAAC Tournament record for fewest points allowed in a 43-40 opening-round triumph over Iona.
After going 48-118 in five seasons, Martin was fired from Marist.
