The Seminoles defeated Miami 10-1 on Saturday, giving Martin his 1,975th victory. Martin's first chance to claim the record to himself comes on Sunday when the teams finish a three-game series.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Mike Martin has seen college baseball grow on and off the diamond during his 39 seasons roaming Florida State's dugout.
And the Seminoles coach has won along the way — a lot.
LSU coach Paul Mainieri won't soon forget the way he joined the 1,400 wins club.
His Tigers entered the bottom of the ninth inning trailing Tennessee by four runs Sunday, and they won 9-7 when freshman Daniel Cabrera hit a three-run, walk-off homer.
The three-game sweep at home put Mainieri's career record at 1,400-707-7.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — LSU coach Paul Mainieri says whether Florida State's Mike Martin ever wins a national championship should have no bearing on how his long career in college baseball is judged.
After Mainieri's Tigers beat FSU 7-4 in a College World Series elimination game Wednesday night, an unprompted Mainieri said too much has been made about Martin having never won a national title in 16 College World Series appearances.

Seminoles’ Martin has at least 2 seasons to overtake Garrido
The next milestone for Florida State coach Mike Martin is the NCAA-record 1,975 career wins by the retired Augie Garrido.
Martin on Sunday joined Garrido as the only coaches to win 1,900 games . Mike Martin Jr., who has been with his dad as a player or assistant for more than half of those wins, said 2,000 isn't out of the question considering the Seminoles have averaged 51 a season since the elder Martin took over in 1980.
