Frank Martin to South Carolina

Frank Martin, veteran basketball coach, is in the limelight for his recent move from Kansas State University to University of South Carolina. Frank revealed the news over the weekend.

This is a good move for Frank. The team at University of South Carolina is also looking forward to having him as their coach. Frank Martin performed exceptionally well during his tenure at Kansas University and it was time to move on. He was offered a pretty handsome deal with South Carolina, paying him $12 million over six years. CBSSports.com confirmed about this development on Monday and it is possible that Frank Martin officially announces this for the public today.

Frank Martin led the Wildcats to a 117-54 record with five straight 20-win seasons. Martin took over the team in 2007, since when he has taken the team to the NCAA tournament four times.

Martin talked about his performance by saying, "The stuff that gets out these days, I look at it as a compliment that we're doing our job the right way at Kansas State.”

The reason why this development is being taken so positively by team members and officials of South Carolina is because they had been struggling under the leadership of Darrin Horn, who was fired earlier this month. Horn led the Gamecocks to a 60-63 record during his four seasons as head coach.

Frank Martin’s career in Basketball started back in 2000, when he joined the college ranks as an assistant coach/recruiting coordinator at Northeastern University up till 2004. Frank Later moved to the University of Cincinnati, where he served one season each under Bob Huggins and Andy Kennedy. He followed his coach who helped him to grow in this field and moved to Kansas State in 2006. Frank Martin proved his mettle and was made head coach of the Wildcats in the wake of Bob Huggins' resignation.
