Newspaper Writes of Clemson's Brad Brownell '91: "The Dude Can Coach"

January 30, 2011

82230January 30, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — An article on Brad Brownell, head men's basketball coach at Clemson University and 1991 graduate of DePauw University, declares, "The dude can coach. And he never stops coaching." Scott Adamson writes, "There are many different styles and many different paths to success, but Brownell is the type of leader who stays engaged in the game from warm-ups to the walk back to the bus. He’s talking and teaching through good times and bad, stressing strategy without ever seeming to stress out."

Clemson is 15-6 after crushing Florida State yesterday, 62-44. Brownell is in his first season at Clemson.  He previously led the basketball programs at Wright State University and the University of North Carolina - Wilmington.

The feature notes, "He was born in Indiana, and I’m convinced one day scientists will discover that all who are born in Indiana or Kentucky are blessed with a 'basketball gene.' And he knew what he wanted to do from the start; as soon as he graduated from DePauw University he went into coaching, and he’s been coaching ever since."
