CLEMSON -- Brad Brownell added a point guard and staff member Friday, and details of the basketball coach's contract were also released.
Brownell will make $900,000 next season at Clemson, with performance incentives still to be determined. Oliver Purnell made $1.3 million last season.
Also on Friday, The Post and Courier learned Wright State released signee Cory Stanton from his letter of intent. According to the Dayton Daily News, Stanton will follow Brownell to Clemson.
The pass-first, 5-11 guard is ranked by ESPN as the 79th overall point guard in the 2010 class.
With Clemson starting point guard Demontez Stitt entering his senior year, and reserve Andre Young entering his junior season, the acquisition of Stanton could be a long-term coup for Brownell.
Friday marked the second straight day of positive player news for Brownell, after rising sophomore forward Devin Booker elected to remain at Clemson on Thursday.
Brownell also continued to round out his coaching staff Friday, hiring former Tulane assistant Dick Bender to a position yet to be determined.
Bender was an assistant at DePauw during Brownell's playing days at the Division III school, and spent the last three seasons at Tulane on Dave Dickerson's staff. Dickerson resigned last month.
According to the Anderson Independent Mail, Dickerson is a candidate to join Clemson's staff as a lead assistant. Dickerson is also considering other opportunities.
Dickerson and Bender could round out Clemson's three assistants. From Wright State, Brownell brought assistant Mike Winiecki and manager Lucas McKay.
