Carter will replace Brown at South Carolina St.

ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- South Carolina State has hired Tim
Carter as its men's basketball coach.

Carter was introduced on campus Friday in front of about 100
people, pledging that he would bring exciting basketball to the
Bulldogs and their fans.

"I will make one promise: You will enjoy watching us play,"
Carter said.

Carter spent the past season as an assistant coach at Florida
State. Before that, he was head coach at Texas-San Antonio, where
his teams twice made the NCAA Tournament.

Carter replaces Jamal Brown, a former player and assistant who
led the Bulldogs for one season. Brown was fired in March for what
the school termed violations of its obligations under the federal
Title IX law.
