Martin, 45, is under contract with Kansas State through 2015 after signing an extension two years ago.
It was unclear what the parameters of any deal with South Carolina were.
According to The State of Columbia, S.C., South Carolina trustees have called a meeting to discuss “a contractual matter.” The Kansas City Star also has reported Martin’s hire, citing an unnamed source close to the coach.
Martin is a native of Miami and coached high school basketball there for 15 years. He joined Northeastern University as an assistant coach in 2000 before working in the same capacity for Cincinnati and Kansas State. He was named coach of the Wildcats in 2007 and has led Kansas State to three straight NCAA tournament appearances.
Martin earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Florida International in 1993.
