Brad Brownell's contract extended through 2021

CLEMSON — Clemson's Board of Trustees approved and extended Brad Brownell's contract through 2021 during a meeting on Wednesday.

Brownell is guaranteed to make $1.8 million in 2017-18, $1.9 million in 2018-19 and $2 million each for 2019-20 and 2020-21.

Brownell's status with the program was in question following a 17-16 campaign in which the Tigers lost 12 games by six points or fewer. Clemson was 6-12 in the ACC and lost at home in the NIT to Oakland to end the season. However, Athletic Director Dan Radakovich announced a few weeks ago that Brownell would return for his eighth season at the helm of the Tigers.

Brownell, 48, took over the program in 2010 and took the Tigers to the NCAA tournament in his first season. Clemson has not returned to the NCAA tournament since. The Tigers went to the NIT in 2014 and this year, and he has a 124-103 overall record as Clemson’s head coach.

The compensation committee of the board also adjusted Brownell's buyout, which was previously $3 million with mitigation had he been fired following the 2016-17 season. The buyout without mitigation is now $1.7 million if he is released before April 30 of 2018. That number drops to $850,000 if he is released before April 30 of 2019 and $425,000 if he is released before April 30 of 2020.
