Source: Clemson to hire Brownell

One of our better sources is telling us that Clemson and Wright State head coach Brad Brownell have reached a deal. Brownell has success at both Wright State (84-45 in 4 seasons) and UNC-Wilmington (83-40 in 4 seasons). He has had four straight 20 win seasons at Wright State (5 straight including his last season at UNCW). he will replace Oliver Purnell who accepted the DePaul job last week. A press conference is scheduled for later this afternoon.
