South Carolina is adding a veteran coach to its basketball staff.
Orlando Early, the coach at Louisiana-Monroe, is leaving to become an assistant under Darrin Horn, according to multiple sources.
Early is expected to take the position of current assistant Cypheus Button. It was not clear Thursday morning whether Button was being temporarily reassigned or whether he could return to the staff next year.
Button is currently the top assistant on the staff.
Horn interviewed Early two years ago after being hired at USC. Early elected to stay at Louisiana-Monroe, and Horn then hired Mike Boynton.
