South Carolina basketball head coach Frank Martin was fired by the school on Monday. Per ESPN:


Martin spent the last two seasons on the hot seat, surviving last spring and even receiving a two-year contract extension. And despite South Carolina finishing 18-13 overall and 9-9 in the SEC this season, the school opted to move on from Martin after a decade in Columbia. The Gamecocks made just one NCAA tournament during Martin's 10 seasons in charge, but that trip to the tournament in 2017 resulted in the school's first Final Four appearance.

In Martin's time as coach, South Carolina was 171-147 overall. The Gamecocks finished in the top half of the SEC in three of the last four seasons, but were above .500 in conference play just four times in 10 seasons.
