Brownell / things I heard yesterday and last night [22]
Posted: Mar 20, 2017 9:45 AM
    Reply

We heard yesterday that there was a big meeting of "the suits" and that a decision had been made regarding Brownell. At the time, I was told that a buyout had been negotiated, and that Brad was out the door. Then we all started hearing the rumors last night that Clemson was interested in Will Wade....

I was told that Wade used Clemson as leverage for another deal. That Wade has no interest in returning to Clemson, and views this job as a mid-major in a big conference with zero upside. He wants to follow in Shaka's footsteps and get a "big" job.

Once that was known, things changed in the proverbial landscape and Brad was retained.

Keep in mind, this isn't confirmed, but it's things I have heard from both sides. Seems to make sense.

I feel like you are suggesting DRad might have fabricated

None of what is written by Hood is in DRad's best interest

So it was Wade or nothing?
TheSecondComing17® Mar 20, 2017 9:48 AM
It is quite possible that that is Wade's thoughts....
franc1968® Mar 20, 2017 9:48 AM
The "Wade or bust" thing by DRad is a cop out
twentytwofifteen Mar 20, 2017 9:55 AM
Agreed. That sounds like spin.***
Lost_Tiger Mar 20, 2017 9:57 AM
So we had only one target if Brownell was to be fired?
Lost_Tiger Mar 20, 2017 9:53 AM
Retaining a bad coach who failed in a overrated ACC? Got it!***

Kinda worst case scenario for all involved.

Yeah, I think it was leaked to get LSU to commit to Wade

How demotivating for CBB if true.

This is true, especially for someone making $$ MILLIONS...
