Gamecocks Basketball: Brad Underwood Leaving?

According to The Lufkin News, current South Carolina men's basketball associate coach Brad Underwood will be named the next head coach of Stephen F. Austin.

This could happen as "early as Tuesday." Underwood has spent one year at USC with Coach Frank Martin.

It is not a complete shock to see him go as he felt shafted after Kansas State did not name him the top guy after Martin left. So the yearn to be a head coach was a known itch and one he needed to satisfy. The chance to be part of the Lumberjack staff appears to be a situation ripe for him in his coaching career and we here at LOHD wish him the best if he decides to go.

We know Coach Frank Martin will fill the gap with a top assistant. The 2013-14 squad will have new faces, both with players and now with a coach. Regardless, we trust Martin to take USC basketball to a new respectable level.
