Brownell Receives Extension from Tigers

After an impressive season that produced 23 wins and a sixth-place finish in the ACC, Clemson has rewarded basketball coach Brad Brownell with a six-year extension, the school announced Friday. According to multiple reports, the deal is worth $10.6 million and includes a $350,000 raise for next season. 

In four years with the program, Brownell has posted a 74-58 record. His 32 regular-season wins in conference over the last four years mark the most ever by a Clemson coach.

“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. I would like to thank Dan Radakovich, President Jim Clements and the Board of Trustees for their confidence in my leadership for the future of our basketball program. I would also like to thank my coaching staff, as well as our current and former players for their hard work and contributions.”
