The website, along with sponsor ONS Performance, will announce 10 finalists on April 20 and the winners on May 4. The five winners will be selected by a panel of coaches across the collegiate ranks.

Bradley is in his sixth season with the Tiger basketball program. He has helped Clemson to three consecutive 20-win seasons, a first in school history. This past season, Clemson finished 24th in the final Associated Press poll and compiled a 23-9 overall record. For the fifth straight season, the Tiger program improved its winning percentage.

Bradley, who owns over 30 years of collegiate coaching experience, helped the Tigers to a perfect 14-0 non-conference record in the regular season and a 9-7 mark in ACC play. It was the first time since 1965-66 and 1966-67 that the Tiger basketball program produced back-to-back winning records during the ACC regular season.

The Quincy, MA native has had a positive impact on Clemson defensively throughout Oliver Purnell's tenure. This season, the Tigers rank in the top 10 in the NCAA statistics in both steals per game (9.3) and blocked shots per game (5.8). Clemson is the only team in the country to rank in the top 10 in both statistical categories. Top Stories
