Gamecocks' Coach Suspended For Using Expletives

Frank Martin

It's been a pretty tough season for the South Carolina Gamecocks and they will conclude regular season play on Saturday without their head coach. On Thursday, the university announced thatFrank Martin has been suspended for one gamebecause of inappropriate verbal communication with a player.

The one-game suspension is a result of inappropriate verbal communication as it relates to the well-being of our student-athletes, South Carolina AD Ray Tanner said in the release.

The school was not very specific in regards to the actual situation. During the Gamecocks loss to No. 1 Florida on Tuesday night, Martin wascaught on camera berating freshman Duane Noticeduring a timeout. By reading lips, It seems like Martin demands that Notice answer the (expletive) question, you (expletive)!

Associate head coach Matt Figger will serve as acting head coach on Saturday. They have to win against the Bulldogs to keep them out of last place, ahead of next weeks SEC tournament.
