Miami QB Tate Martell Reveals New Girlfriend to the World and Thanks Her for Sliding in His DMs

It's been a wild ride for Tate Martell, a former Ohio State quarterback turned Miami Hurricane. Martell left OSU after they brought in former 5-star signal-caller Justin Fields to essentially take his starting spot.

Tate, otherwise known as Tathan, saw the writing on the wall, and left for greener pastures at the U. As it turns out, that was a very wise decision. Not only is Martell likely to start at Miami, but he's had more success off the field as well.

Don't believe us? Just take it from him.

The man doesn't lie, thank goodness those DMs are open. We're also grateful Brent Musburger isn't calling any Miami games this season.

Martell's new girlfriend, Kiki, has been quite active on social media and is very willing to show off their relationship as well. The two seem quite thrilled with Martell's new arrangement in Coral Gables.

We're not quite convinced Kiki's the lucky one here.

It remains to be seen if Martell's success will translate on the field at the U, although playing in a fairly weak ACC should help matters.
