USC's Frank Martin receives one game suspension

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

University of South Carolina head men's basketball coach Frank Martin has been suspended from his coaching duties for Saturday's game at Mississippi State, Athletics Director Ray Tanner announced Thursday.

Martin will not accompany the team to Starkville.

"The one-game suspension is a result of inappropriate verbal communication as it relates to the well-being of our student-athletes," said Tanner.

During Tuesday's loss to top ranked Florida, ESPN's camera caught Martin chewing out guard Duane Notice, his language was sprinkled with four letter words.

Earlier this season, Martin apologized to guard Brenton Williams after another outburst.

When Martin was hired by USC, he said he was going to work on cleaning up his language after complaints by his wife.

Associate head coach Matt Figger will serve as acting head coach when the Gamecocks (11-19, 4-13 SEC) take on the Bulldogs (13-17, 3-14 SEC) in the final regular season game of the year. Game time is set for 4 p.m. ET.
