Frank Martin Takes Math Club to Elementary Schools


After taking a vacation after the Gamecock's magical Final Four run and cheering on Sindarius Thornwell and PJ Dozier as they entered the NBA Draft, South Carolina men's basketball head coach Frank Martin took the time to give back to the community on Tuesday afternoon.

Frank Martin visited Mill Creek Elementary and Brennan Elementary in Columbia for "Martin's Math Club," a program designed to help young kids learn math in a fun way.

Martin used to be a high school math teacher before becoming a college basketball coach.

"Anytime I walk into a school building, even when I'm recruiting, I get goosebumps," Martin said. "I miss the classroom. I always have, I always will."

Martin also added he hopes to return to the classroom after he's done coaching.

"I wanna go away the way I came in," he said. "As a school teacher."
