Frank Martin expresses his support for fired Tubby Smith

Tubby Smith

South Carolina head coach Frank Martin expressed his support for Tubby Smith after Smith was fired by Memphis on Wednesday.

Martin called it a “sad day” in the business with Smith being fired after just two years on the job.

Smith went 40-26 over two seasons, though there was nothing special about his tenure. And that’s the problem.

Memphis thinks that by hiring Penny Hardaway — which many believe will happen — they can bring a spark to the program. If Hardaway is able to add many of his AAU and high school players as recruits, the Tigers will be in a much better position to win than they were under Smith.
