Frank Martin To South Carolina Rumors: Gamecocks Discuss Contract Offer To Coach

The rumors surrounding Kansas State Wildcats head coach Frank Martin are firing through the Twitter feeds, but no official offer has been made as of yet.

The Sporting News is reporting that the University of South Carolina board of trusteeswill meet this week to discuss an offer to make to Martin, who took over the K-State job in 2007 after Bob Huggins.

South Carolina is looking to replace Darrin Horn who was let go after four seasons on the job. The Gamecocks have only one NCAA tournament appearance since 1999. By contrast, Martin has coached the the Wildcats to the tournament in four out of his five years heading the program.

There is, however, skepticism behind Martin's potential move, since the coach did come out and say that he has paid some of his former players who had played for him in high school when they had nowhere else to turn. Martin never said he paid players at K-State, though. This could obviously impact the Wildcats recruiting as well, as K-State beat writer Rob Casidy reports.
