South Carolina assistant Brad Underwood is expected to be named the Lumberjacks new head man this afternoon. Although Underwood has only been with the Gamecocks for a year, he has been an assistant under Frank Martin since 2007. Prior to being an assistant at Kansas State, he was the Wildcats Director of Basketball Operations.
Underwood has also spent time as an assistant at Western Illinois and as a head coach at Dodge City Community College and Daytona Beach Community College.
