The drum beat for the firing of South Carolina's Darrin Horn is growing louder, as everyone realizes that the time to act is now and not after the NCAA tourney. With recent moves across the coaching landscape, most feel that IF Eric Hyman is to act then this is the week.
What is going against Horn is the fact that South Carolina just finished 2-14 in the SEC. Lost again in SEC Tourney play. Got their fourth 20-loss season in school history. Tied the school record for losses with 21. Suffering at recruiting. Attendance is down and the fan support is dwindling.
So the ball is in Hyman's court.
Our friends at TheBigSpur.com are reporting that the chances of Darrin Horn getting fired have grown within the last week, and it is seemingly becoming more and more likely that it will happen. It is not definite at this point, obviously, but if it happens it could happen as early as Tuesday.
The buyout is high but given the state of the program, most feel worth it.
On Monday, the women's program will get their NCAA bid so there is no reason to overshadow that success. But after that, the watch is on for what happens to Darrin Horn.
