Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- USC basketball coach Frank Martin spent part of his Tuesday at Brennan Elementary School where kids saw first hand how important being visible in the community is to the coach.

Martin brought a couple of his players and staff to the school where they interacted with kids in kindergarten and first grade.

The coach talked to the kids about doing well in school while at the same time, sending a message that it is equally important to build relationships in the community while he continues the building process of the basketball program.
