The University of South Carolina’s board of trustees are scheduled to hold a conference-call meeting at 10am ET this morning to talk about a “contractual matter.” That matter is believed to be the near-$2 million contract that’s bringing Frank Martin from Kansas State to South Carolina. According to WIS-TV in Columbia, the hoops coach will ink a six-year pact worth $12 million.
One Martin’s deal is rubber stamped by the board, a press conference to “discuss the men’s coaching situation” will be held at the Colonial Life Arena.
The Martin era at Carolina is about to get underway. You can watch the presser right here.
(Sidenote — Speaking yesterday to a radio audience, Carolina AD Eric Hyman said his new coach told him during the interview process: “You know, you’ve got Steve Spurrier, you’ve got Dawn Staley and you’ve got Ray Tanner. Something must be going right at South Carolina.“)
