KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas State coach Frank Martin says he's happy coaching the Wildcats.

That doesn't mean he wouldn't listen if Miami came calling.

In an interview on a nationally syndicated radio show hosted by Tim Brando, Martin said Tuesday no one had called him about any other position and he has a great job at Kansas State working with great people. But he also said that in his business, "it's hard to ever sit back and say 'never say never' because then you get called a liar."

Martin is a native of Miami and was a successful high school coach there. He's been successful at Kansas State in his first job as a head coach, succeeding Bob Huggins four seasons ago.

The Miami job came open this week when Frank Haith left for Missouri.
