Clemson and once-embattled basketball coach Brad Brownell have agreed on a six-year deal worth $10.6 million.
The school announced the deal Friday. The agreement will tie Brownell to the Tigers through the 2019-20 season.
Brownell will earn $1.550 million in total compensation next season. That figure will rise to $2 million by the deal's final year.
Brownell was very much coaching for his job when the season began as the Tigers went 13-18 in 2013. But Clemson and Brownell turned things around this season, going 23-13 and reaching the NIT semifinals in New York.
It's the second time in the past few months that Clemson's locked up a coach for long term. In January, Clemson gave football coach Dabo Swinney an eight-year contract that will pay him $3.15 million next season.
