The Clemson Tigers have hired Amanda Butler as their next women’s basketball coach on Friday. The announcement was made by Athletic Director Dan Radakovich after she was approved by the Clemson Board of Trustee’s Compensation Committee.

Butler was fired by her alma mater, the Florida Gators, after a decade on her 45th birthday. She was fired on March 6th, 2017.

In the year away from the game, she spent time visiting multiple teams.

In her final season with the Gators, she went 15-16. This was one of three seasons in which she had 15 or fewer wins in 10 campaigns.

With the Gators, she went a combined 190-136. She also went 71-85 within the Southeastern Conference.

Besides the Gators, she went 40-22 with the Charlotte 49ers. During her coaching career, her team at Charlotte won the Atlantic 10 regular season once, along with making four NCAA Tournament appearances.

She was also the 2006 Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year.

“We’re excited to welcome Amanda to the Clemson family,” Radakovich said. “Certainly, the success her teams have had on the court at Charlotte and Florida are noteworthy, but her passion for all aspects of collegiate coaching couples with her desire to shape the lives of student-athletes on and off the court stood out throughout our search.”
