TIGERS KEEP HOOPS COACH …

Clemson University has made it official: Embattled head men’s basketball coach Brad Brownell will be back to coach the Tigers next season.

Here is the statement released early Monday morning from Clemson athletics director Dan Radakovich

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.

Surprised?  Yes … and no.

To fire Brownell, Clemson would have had to pay him $3.5 million.  Clearly the program didn’t want to take that hit ….
