It doesn't matter how any of us feel, but it was the right choice, I just wish that Neff would have done the same with Brownell bc, IMO, he has gotten more saves from his chair being set on fire more than he deserves!!! But, I bet Brownell woke up when he heard that Neff set fire to Monte Lee's office chair, it has to be front, and center of his thoughts, that if he misses the Dance this coming season, he better start packing his bags as soon as he realizes that he won't be invited to the Dance!!!

The difference in Monte Lee's and Brad Brownell's statuses most likely hinges on buyouts. Coach Lee had a $500K buyout vs. $3M for Coach Brownell who had been given an extension by Radakovich just two months before he left for Miami.

Nope. He was. I don’t get this: you’ll always be a Tiger stuff. They’re gone. No longer a coach or player here. In fact, they ALL identify with the school they transfer to. Your ex’s always part of your family!? Not mine!

I wish Coach Lee well. I think he’s a good guy and will probably be a decent coach at a lower level. He just wasn’t the guy to get it done here. I’m glad the AD recognized that and took action.

Totally agree. Wish nothing but the best for he and his entire family. He might win a natty at his next gig, who knows.

Hope we hire a proven D1 coach and not mess with mid major "johnny come lately" coach because they won a conference and got an automatic bid. Someone highly touted recruits that commit will actually come play.

Are you really that dim, CBB has been the head basketball coach for 12 very long years, and he hasn't won nothing. Monte Lee has been at Clemson for 6 years, and doing the same as Brownell, Nothing. HCBB should have been years ago!!!

It stinks that Monte didn't work out well with our Tigers. Hope we get it better this time around. It's good that Neff will have a coaching search under his belt should a similar opportunity present itself with any of our other mens sports in the not too distant future.

This basically proves that basketball doesn’t mean anything to the Admin at Clemson!! Not saying this wasn’t needed, but no more needed the basketball program needed it with more years to right the ship. Lee has had great talent and couldn’t get over the hump but had some strong freshmen on this years team that couldn’t righted the ship. Hope we can get one of our proven past asst and not go after another mid major coach we hope works out! Need to dump the bank at O’Sullivan and get us back to a top program!!

Clemson is my University and I’m going to pull for my Tigers whoever is coaching. He or she is my coach. I just don’t understand the reasoning behind firing Coach Lee and letting Brownell stay around. This screams that we care about baseball and could care less about basketball. Brownell has underperformed year after year on the court and in recruiting. If the standards for baseball warrant todays firing then the basketball standards are that of a club sport. I love baseball and I want to win but it seems like Coach Lee got the short end of the stick here. Go Tigers!!!

For you and rest of your ilk comparing Brownell and Lee

You obviously haven’t followed Clemson athletics very long. Comparing the tradition of Clemson Baseball with that of Clemson Basketball is night and day and any of you that don’t get that just are newbies with no clue. Clemson basketball has been a lower tier program for its entire history. Would I like it to be better, yes, but it never has and probably never will. If Brownell runs a clean program and gets in the NCAA tournament every 2-3 years he will have done better than every other coach that has been here. He has more ACC wins than any other coach in our history.

Clemson Baseball on the other hand was the gold standard of college baseball for 35 years. We were consider one of the top 15 programs in the country for decades. We fired a hall of fame coach because he couldn’t win in Omaha and probably because it was the height of USC’s run so there was extra pressure. We hired Lee to not rebuild a program but to take one of the best programs in the country and get over the hump of winning the national title that we just couldn’t quite win. What he has done in 7 years in run that program into the ground and missed back to back tournaments for the first time since 86’ and had our first losing season in 50 years. He has to go.

I’m so sick yoh uninformed people trying to compare these two programs and coaches. Know your athletic programs history and the dynamics within it or just keep your mouth shut. You are making yourselves look stupid.

Had no problem with firing Jack and now have no problem with firing Monte. Jack lost his top assistants who had carried his water and ran out of steam. Monte could recruit but obviously could not develop, choose good assistants or coach very well.

There is nothing wrong with saying that it is time to go, but thanking Monte Lee for his time, effort and accomplishments while here. I am sure that the lack of success the last couple of years was not due to the lack of effort. However, when you have such a high profile position, you have to back it up with results. Good luck Monte in your future adventures (unless you are playing Clemson).
