By not firing him this year, we are losing money in ticket sales and the excitement of a new direction of the program with a new arena as well as falling behind in recruiting. A new coach could of at least been able to show the direction he wants to take the program and have a chance at convincing Zion Williamson to come to Clemson.
So, we should have fired because there might be a decline in ticket sales, might be a loss of excitement, and might fall behind in recruiting? Nothing you said is concrete. There is no factual basis in your post as to why Brownell should have been fired. It's purely speculation.
Brownell was instrumental in getting the donors involved to renovate Littlejohn, and he just signed his best recruiting class while also getting interest from a legit one and done player. I guess you haven't followed TCI's reporting that if Brownell is fired, Williamson wouldn't be considering Clemson.
