Clemson University and men's basketball coach Brad Brownell agreed to a new six-year deal on Friday, the school announced via its website.

He's gone 74-58 with the Tigers, leading the team to an NCAA Tournament bid and an NIT berth. His career record sits at 241-143.

Brownell issued a statement about the extension via the release:

"I am thrilled to be the head basketball coach at Clemson and take great pride in the many accomplishments of our players on and off the court. I look forward to building on the success of this past season and believe there is a great deal of positive momentum within the program."
The Tigers went 23-13 last year after a 2012-13 season in which they finished 13-18. The 10 win increase tied the record for best single-season improvement in program history.
