Report: Frank Martin has agreed to become South Carolina’s next basketball coach

Not quite sure what’s involved here, but reportedly Kansas State head coach Frank Martin has agreed to take the same position at South Carolina. A head scratching move indeed.

A source close to Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin said Monday morning that Martin will become South Carolina’s next coach.

The source confirmed a report in The State, a newspaper in Columbia, S.C., that said Martin will be introduced as the Gamecocks’ coach on Tuesday. The State also reported that a trustees meeting had been called to discuss “a contractual matter.”

If true, which it seems to be, this move doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to us. Martin would be leaving a program that he’s built into a Big XII contender that remotely cares about basketball to go to a program that is far from being a contender that doesn’t really care about basketball.

Maybe this hire will change all that.
