USC plans renovations at practice facility

Dawn Staley got a big contract to come to South Carolina. Now, she and her women's basketball staff will get larger offices.

Athletics Department spokesman Steve Fink said Wednesday that South Carolina will renovate the Frank McGuire conference room at its practice facility for the volleyball program. The vacated space above will go to women's basketball.

The McGuire room had been used to hold major announcements.

The men's basketball offices for first-year coach Darrin Horn will also receive upgrades, although the space will remain the same. Staley, the former Temple coach, received a five-year contract with a total package worth $650,000 a season.

The construction is expected to be finished in time for the fall.
