Brad Brownell gets 6-year deal
Clemson has signed coach Brad Brownell to a new six-year contract, the school announced Friday.
Brownell led the Tigers (23-13) to the NIT semifinals this past season. Overall, he has a 74-58 mark in four seasons at Clemson. The Tigers made the NCAA tournament in 2010-11.
"I am thrilled to be the head basketball coach at Clemson and take great pride in the many accomplishments of our players on and off the court," Brownell said in a statement. "I look forward to building on the success of this past season and believe there is a great deal of positive momentum within the program."
Brownell, who has a career 241-143 record, led the Tigers to a 10-8 mark in the ACC last season -- just the fourth time the program has reached double-digit wins in conference play. The Tigers also improved by 10 wins over the 2012-13 season, matching the best year-over-year improvement in program history.
"Brad has done a tremendous job building a solid foundation for our basketball program," athletic director Dan Radakovich said in a statement. "I have the utmost confidence in Brad to continue to build as we compete in the nation's best basketball conference. We're excited to have him lead our program into the future for a long time to come."
