Is Wichita State head basketball coach Gregg Marshall interested in returning to his home state? We'll find out early next week.
A WSU spokesman says Marshall will issue a statement Monday on whether or not he's interested in the opening at the University of South Carolina. South Carolina coach Dave Odom will retire at the end of the season.
Marshall is a native of Greenwood, SC, and coached at Winthrop University in the state.
South Carolina Athletic Director Eric Hyman says the school will not look to hire anyone until the season ends. Newspapers in South Carolina list Marshall as a possible replacement to Odom.
Marshall is in his first season at Wichita State. The Shockers play at Southern Illinois Saturday. The game can be seen on Kansas Now 22, beginning at 2 p.m.
