Clemson coach Oliver Purnell, 56, will be introduced today at a 1:30 p.m. news conference as the new coach of DePaul.

Purnell has been successful at Clemson, where he turned around the once-struggling ACC program the last seven seasons, going 138-90, including 21-11 this season. However, Tiger fans are quick to point out that Purnell is 0-7 in the NCAA tournament.

Purnell also was successful at Dayton before leaving for Clemson. He has coached at Old Dominion and Radford as well.

He is expected to sign a long term deal of seven years worth an estimated $15 million.
