CONWAY, S.C. (AP) -Former Auburn and Clemson basketball coach Cliff Ellis was hired at Coastal Carolina on Monday.
Ellis was among five finalists for the job vacated last month by Buzz Peterson, who left the Chanticleers after two seasons to become director of player personnel for the Charlotte Bobcats.
Coastal Carolina said in a news release that Ellis, 61, was signed to a five-year contract.
Ellis has a Division I record of 534-337. His last coaching job ended in 2004 at Auburn, where he went 186-125. He spent 10 years at Clemson, leaving as the Tigers' most winning coach in 1994 with a record of 177-128. He had eight NCAA tournament appearances.
Coastal went 15-15 last year.
