CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson has hired Brad Brownell of Wright State as its men's basketball coach.
Brownell replaces Oliver Purnell, who left after seven seasons to become the coach at DePaul.
Clemson spokesman Tim Bourrett says Brownell will be introduced Tuesday afternoon at a news conference at the school.
Brownell went 84-45 in four years at Wright State in Ohio. He led the Raiders to a 20-12 -- 12-6 in the Horizon League. Wright State was beaten by eventual NCAA tournament runner-up Butler in the conference championship game.
Before arriving at Wright State, Brownell was the coach at UNC-Wilmington, and went 83-40 in four seasons.
At Clemson, Purnell was 138-88, including three straight first-round losses in the NCAA tournament.
