    Report: Frank Martin a ‘key target’ for Cincinnati job
    By Andrew Ramspacher

    The 53-year-old is the 22nd-highest paid coach in the country — with a salary of $2.95 million — and is signed to Carolina through 2023. His buyout is $2 million and drops to $1 million after next season.
    Martin has a history with the Bearcats, however. He worked as a Cincinnati assistant from 2004-06 under Bob Huggins and Andy Kennedy.

    Cronin, who left for UCLA on Tuesday, made $2.2 million a year with the Bearcats, a member of the American Athletic Conference.
    Goodman has mentioned Martin for a variety of openings lately, including UNLV, Virginia Tech, St. John’s and Arkansas.

    “I think Frank Martin would leave for the right situation,” Goodman told The State in March. “He’s not gonna leave for just anything. I know he loves his boss, I know he loves the area, everything like that.

    I know it's only usc, but is that really a better job?

    "Goodman has mentioned Martin for a variety of openings lately, including UNLV, Virginia Tech, St. John’s and Arkansas. "

    Seems like a lot of mud thrown against the wall... methinks goodman is trying to stay relevant

    He’s decided to stay. He was offered and considered the job due to him working with Bob Huggins while he was there.

    Martin isn’t going to Cincinnati. I don’t think they could afford his buyout on his contract which is substantial.

    Leaving out the money, he fits that program like a guy who just walked out of central casting.

    Frank Martin is a good coach, he gets more out of less. I like him at USC, but I would probably take the Cincinnati job if I was him.

    Seems like a good job...to get USC's attention and give him what he wants. Otherwise....?

    UC has a lot of basketball history, but most of it is ancient history.

    Ed Jucker did well at Cincinnati. He almost had a three-peat, losing to Loyola Chicago in 1963. He did all of that AFTER The Big O left.

    My inlaws knew Tony Yates and he didn't do so well there. I may have never met my wife if it wasn't for Tony and Maxine Yates.
