Morrell to be Director of Basketball Ops has learned Mike Morrell will be named the new Director of Basketball Operations.

Morrell served as a graduate assistant for head coach Oliver Purnell last season after coming to Clemson from King College (TN).

He fills a position which was left open by Josh Posterino, who was promoted to assistant coach at Clemson after former assistant Shaka Smart left to take a similar position at Florida last month.

As a graduate assistant, Morrell's primary responsibilities last season included film breakdown, organizing recruiting mail-outs, and providing assistance in opponent scouting.

Last season the Tigers reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 10 years.

An official announcement is expected later this week. Top Stories
