Darrin Horn promised to build a fence around state when hired at USC in 2008
Darrin Horn is reportedly a head coach again.
CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish tweeted Tuesday night that Horn, who led South Carolina from 2008-12, has been hired by Northern Kentucky.
Horn was fired by USC after going 60-63 over four seasons, including a 10-21 mark (2-14 SEC) in his final campaign. He’s been on Texas coach Shaka Smart’s staff since 2015.
Horn, 46, is a Bluegrass State native who went 111-48 with Western Kentucky from 2003-08. He replaces John Brannen at NKU. Brannen was hired by Cincinnati on April 14. (The open Bearcat job piqued the interest of Carolina’s Frank Martin).
Northern Kentucky competes in the Horizon League.
