CLEMSON, S.C. - Clemson Director of Athletics Graham Neff announced that Amanda Butler will not return as head coach of the women’s basketball program. In six seasons, Clemson had an 81-106 (.433) overall record, including a 32-73 (.305) mark in ACC play. The Tigers finished 12-19 overall and 5-13 in ACC play in 2023-24. 

 

“I thank Amanda for her contributions to our basketball program as head coach for the past six seasons and wish her the best in the future,” said Neff. “We are committed to completing a national search for the next leader of the program as the sport continues to grow. We believe that we are resourced and supported in a way to make this one of the top teams in the nation every year.”  

 

Butler led the program to its first NCAA Tournament appearance in 20 years during her first season in 2018-19, when she was named ACC Coach of the Year. She coached three All-ACC selections, Kobi Thornton, Delicia Washington and Amari Robinson. 

 

Butler was the program’s seventh head coach in 49 seasons, and previously served as head coach at Florida and Charlotte prior to taking the role at Clemson. 

 

The women’s basketball program has participated in 16 NCAA Tournaments, four NCAA Sweet Sixteens and has two ACC Championships. Clemson recently completed $63.5 million in upgrades to Littlejohn Coliseum, and recently received Phase I approval for a $40 million expansion and renovation to the team areas.
