COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina men's basketball assistant Matt Figger has been promoted to associate head coach.

Head coach Frank Martin announced the move Wednesday. Figger had been the team's recruiting coordinator and will remain in that role. He moves into the spot vacated by Brad Underwood, who became Stephen F. Austin's head coach this past spring.

Martin said it was an easy decision promoting Figger, who has been assistant under Martin for the past six seasons at Kansas State and at South Carolina.

Figger also has spent time on the coaching staffs at Arkansas and South Alabama.
