CLEMSON -- Clemson men's basketball coach Brad Brownell was rewarded with a new contract on Friday after leading the Tigers to an NCAA tournament appearance in his first season as coach.

Brownell will earn $1.2 million per season through the 2016-17 season. It marks a 33 percent raise for Brownell.

"We could not be more pleased with what coach Brownell and his staff accomplished in his first year," Clemson athletic director Terry Don Phillips said.

"He did a great job assembling a tremendous staff. I have worked with a national championship program at Arkansas and a Final Four program at Oklahoma State, and I believe this staff is as good as I have been around. I was impressed with Brad in every phase of the program this year."

The Tigers finished 22-12 (9-7 ACC) in Brownell's first year at Clemson.
