South Carolina coach Frank Martin on outburst: 'I've got issues'
South Carolina coach Frank Martin said he regrets his outburst that earned him a one-game suspension and that he is going to work on his anger issues.
The school suspended Martin for one game after his tirade during South Carolina's 72-46 loss to Florida for what athletic director Ray Tanner said is "inappropriate verbal communication as it relates to the well-being of our student-athletes."
Martin will miss Saturday's game at Mississippi State.
"I screwed up," Martin told ESPN.com. "I'm not perfect. I've got issues and I've got to work through them."
"I met with my athletic director and fully support his decision," he added.
"I embarrassed my family, my kids, my past current and past players and my bosses," Martin said. "My actions are not acceptable. I work at my problems every day. I've got to get better. I'm still not where I need to be."
