Source: WSU moving quickly to replace Brownell


Wright State isn't wasting time finding a replacement for Brad Brownell. A source close to the program told CBSSports.com on Tuesday that the school is already working to promote assistant Billy Donlon. A formal announcement should come in the next 24 hours.

Donlon is a 33-year-old UNCW graduate who has worked for Brownell since 2002.

He's considered one of the bright young minds in college basketball.

Brownell accepted the Clemson job early Tuesday, as first reported by CBSSports.com. He's replacing Oliver Purnell, who left last week for a seven-year contract worth more than $15 million at DePaul.

Source: Clemson to hire Wright State's Brownell


Wright State's Brad Brownell has agreed in principle to be Clemson's next basketball coach, a source told CBSSports.com on Tuesday morning.

An official announcement is expected later Tuesday.

Brownell first spoke with Clemson officials last week and then again Monday after Mississippi State's Rick Stansbury rejected an offer from the ACC school. Brownell has since received an offer and accepted, meaning he'll replace Oliver Purnell, who signed a seven-year deal worth more than $15 million with DePaul last week.

Clemson finished 22-11 this season.

The Tigers lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Brownell has won at least 20 games four consecutive seasons at Wright State.

The Indiana native was a finalist for the Indiana job that Tom Crean accepted two years ago.

Source: Stansbury rejects offer from Clemson


Mississippi State's Rick Stansbury rejected an offer to be Clemson's next coach, a source at MSU told CBSSports.com on Monday. Consequently, Clemson will continue working to find a replacement for Oliver Purnell, who left last week to take over at DePaul.

Five coaches -- Wright State's Brad Brownell, Wofford's Mike Young, Jacksonville's Cliff Warren, Old Dominion's Blaine Taylor and former Boston College coach Al Skinner -- have already interviewed for the position, and Clemson assistant Ron Bradley is also considered a candidate. A source told CBSSports.com that neither Oklahoma's Jeff Capel nor Baylor's Scott Drew are seriously involved despite reports to the contrary. Arizona State's Herb Sendek passed on an interview, sources told CBSSports.com.

Purnell signed a seven-year deal worth more than $15 million at DePaul.

Stansbury a serious candidate at Clemson


A new name has entered the mix at Clemson: Mississippi State's Rick Stansbury.

Five coaches -- Wright State's Brad Brownell, Wofford's Mike Young, Jacksonville's Cliff Warren, Old Dominion's Blaine Taylor and former Boston College coach Al Skinner -- have already interviewed for the position, and Clemson assistant Ron Bradley is also considered a candidate. But Stansbury is the highest-profile name to be established as a legitimate candidate considering Oklahoma's Jeff Capel and Baylor's Scott Drew aren't seriously involved despite reports to the contrary, and Arizona State's Herb Sendek passed on an interview, sources told CBSSports.com.

Stansbury has made six NCAA tournaments in 12 seasons at Mississippi State.

Clemson is searching for a replacement for Oliver Purnell.

He left last Tuesday to take over at DePaul for more than $15 million.

Drew interview at Clemson? Don't hold your breath


The speculation began Friday and drifted into Saturday, and now a South Carolina newspaper is reporting that Baylor's Scott Drew is a leading candidate at Clemson, and that he's "believed to be interviewing for the position [Saturday] along with Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel." For better or worse, this is the price of being a successful coach at a private school with limited resources relative to state universities.

Brad Stevens dealt with it after a Final Four.

Now Scott Drew is dealing with it after an Elite Eight.

So is Drew a candidate at Clemson?

I'm sure he is because why wouldn't he be?

He's a candidate at Clemson for the same reason Stevens was a candidate at Oregon, because any athletics director worth his complimentary car would be interested in a coach who's achieved unprecedented success at a non-traditional power, and eager to see if he'd move for possibly more money and better resources. In other words, Clemson targeting Drew makes sense. But I wouldn't spend Saturday waiting to hear how Drew interviewed at Clemson, because that's not how this business works. Once you've achieved a certain level of success -- i.e., resurrected a program on the verge of extinction and led it to within a few minutes of a Final Four -- you don't interview for jobs. You are offered jobs, then you either take them or you don't. So if Clemson wants Drew it will simply offer the job. Drew would then accept or decline. But what he wouldn't do is interview because nobody in his position ever would.
