Clemson head coach Brad Brownell attended his first ACC Operation Basketball on Wednesday. Coach Brownell spent the day meeting with media from around the ACC.
During his press conference the first year head coach discussed how he expects the team to learn his new defensive schemes before learning the motion offense. After just a few practices Brownell has seen some progress, but says there is a lot of work to do.
One of his first priorities after arriving on campus was to meet with his players, especially the two seniors. Brownell says he told Demontez and Jerai that he wants to make sure they have a great senior year and quickly told them he needs them to lead the team.
Coach Brownell talked about how Dabo Swinney helped his transition to Clemson. Dabo told Brad about the Tigers struggles at the free throw line and Brad said he put Dabo in charge of free throws.
“If you have any complaints about our free throws this year send your emails to Dabo.Swinney@Clemson.Edu,” said Brownell.
