COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Considered a recent "hot-seat" candidate, Clemson's Brad Brownell has the chance to become the longest-serving men's basketball coach in Tiger history.
Brownell received a new six-year contract on Thursday that will pay him $15 million through 2024. He's spent eight seasons at Clemson, and his previous contract was through 2021.
His average salary increases to $2.5 million per year. He was scheduled to make $1.9 million this season before that bumped up to $2 million for each of the final two years of his old deal.
