Kansas State’s Frank Martin will be hired as South Carolina’s basketball coach, two sources close to the situation have confirmed.
The sources, who are familiar with the negotiations, requested anonymity because they are not authorized to publically discuss the hiring.
The USC Board of Trustees has scheduled a conference-call meeting for 10 a.m. on Tuesday to discuss a “contractual matter.” The Board has to approve Martin’s contract before any official announcement is made.
