South Carolina suspends Frank Martin after incident in loss

South Carolina athletic director Ray Tanner announced on Thursday that coach Frank Martin has been suspended for Saturday's game at Mississippi State because of "inappropriate verbal communication" with an athlete.

Martin was caught on camera during Tuesday's loss to Florida cussing at freshman guard Duane Notice -- apparently yelling "Answer the f-cking question, a--hole!"

South Carolina is 11-19 overall, 4-13 in the SEC.

This is the first suspension of Martin's career.
