After much speculation on the future of Clemson head coach Brad Brownell, AD Dan Radakovich has released the following statement:
“As part of a comprehensive season-ending review and evaluation, I met for several hours with Brad Brownell to review the recently completed season and to look ahead to 2017-2018. Both of us believe strongly that we should have achieved more this season and Brad is candid with his own critique and assessment. As we move forward, I expect Brad to make changes in the program to better position us for success. He continues to represent Clemson University with integrity and class, and we will continue to do all that we can to help him as we expect to achieve consistent success with our men’s basketball program.”
In his seven seasons as the Tigers head coach, Brownell has gone 124-103 (56-66 ACC). The veteran head coach has killed it at his other stops, compiling a 83-40 mark in four seasons at UNC Wilmington, and an 84-45 record in four seasons at Wright State.
Brownell has three years left on his contract which would have cost Clemson a $3.5 million buyout if they chose to release him this year.
