Clemson makes decision on Steve Smith

Clemson has decided not to renew the contract of assistant men’s basketball coach Steve Smith, which expired on April 30, 2019.

Smith was caught on video talking about the recruitment of Zion Williamson and also had some comments about Clemson football in the recent FBI corruption trial.

Brad Brownell released the following short statement:

"I support the decision not to renew Steve Smith’s contract," he said in the release.

Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said Friday both that he was "very confident" that Clemson basketball runs a clean program and that they didn't find anything that "implicates the football program in any of that."

"I think we feel very strongly that those were unfortunate comments," Radakovich said. "We are doing our due diligence, but there is no reason to believe in what we've been able to find that implicates the football program in any of that. It was a very unfortunate choice of words."
