Clemson, SC (WCSC) - Clemson Head Basketball Coach Brad Brownell will remain at the university for six more years, the athletic department announced Friday.

Brownell agreed to a new six-year deal, according to Athletics Director Dan Radakovich who praised Brownell's work in building the college's basketball program.

"I have the utmost confidence in Brad to continue to build as we compete in the nation's best basketball conference," Radakovich said. "We're excited to have him lead our program into the future for along time to come."

"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. “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.”

Brownell compiled a 74-58 record during his four seasons at Clemson, and has taken the Tigers to one NCAA Tournament and one NIT berth. The 2013-14 team finished the season with a 23-13 record and a trip to New York City for the NIT semifinals. Clemson improved by 10 wins over the 2012-13 season, matching the school's record for the best single-season improvement.

The Tigers also doubled their conference win total over the previous season, becoming the fourth team in Clemson history to reach double digit ACC wins.
