A Final Four coach is going to be the next coach of Austin Peay basketball, sources close to the situation say.
Matt Figger, the current associate head coach at South Carolina under Frank Martin, is heading to Austin Peay after the Gamecocks’ season ends. No. 7-seeded South Carolina (26–10) is scheduled to take on No. 1 Gonzaga (36–1) at 5 p.m. Saturday in the Final Four.
The move comes a little more than three weeks after longtime Governors coach Dave Loos retired after 27 seasons.
