COLUMBIA, S.C. - USC Athletics

University of South Carolina head men’s basketball coach Frank Martin has been suspended from his coaching duties for Saturday’s game at Mississippi State, Athletics Director Ray Tanner announced today. Martin will not accompany the team to Starkville.

“The one-game suspension is a result of inappropriate verbal communication as it relates to the well-being of our student-athletes,” said Tanner.

Associate head coach Matt Figger will serve as acting head coach when the Gamecocks (11-19, 4-13 SEC) take on the Bulldogs (13-17, 3-14 SEC) in the final regular season game of the year. Game time is set for 4 p.m. ET.
