COLUMBIA, S.C. — Frank Martin has agreed to become South Carolina's next men's basketball coach, said people familiar with the decision say

The people spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the school had not announced the hiring. The university's board of trustees is scheduled to meet Tuesday morning to discuss a contract matter.

Martin will replace Darrin Horn, who was fired two weeks ago after going 60-63 over four seasons. The Gamecocks finished last in the Southeastern Conference last year.

Martin is leaving Kansas State, which he led to the NCAA tournament four of the last five seasons. The Wildcats reached the regional finals in 2010. His overall record as a head coach is 117-54 and he is 6-4 in the NCAA tourney.

The Gamecocks have been to the NCAA tournament just once since 1998. They finished this season 10-21 and 2-14 in the SEC.

Martin made around $1.1 million at Kansas State.
