ESPN Says Frank Martin Would Consider Miami Basketball Job

Last week Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com reported that, given the right circumstances, Kansas State Wildcats head coach Frank Martin would leave the K-State basketball team and take the head coaching job at the University of Miami.

His sources were unnamed and he noted that several things would have to happen, including Miami committing more to the basketball program.

This week, we have another major reporter, ESPN's Andy Katz, indicating that, if Miami called and the circumstances were right, Martin would be willing to go to Miami. V

Meanwhile, Kansas State coach Frank Martin would listen to Miami and would be willing to go home to his native Miami, according to multiple sources. But those same sources told ESPN.com that the search firm called Martin's representatives and said that Miami and the search firm had no interest in pursuing Martin.

That should settle it but I imagine we'll be hearing Martin's name connected to Miami again. It appears that Miami is starting to focus its search on Harvard's Tommy Amaker.

Frank Martin said this week that Miami has not called him but he would likely at least listen to other offers.
