CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- First-year athletic director Dan Radakovich says he's ready to help all Clemson programs succeed, not just football.

The Tigers football program has taken off in recent years in part because of improvements to its facilities such as the WestZone project at Death Valley and an indoor practice building christened last January.

Radakovich believes the Tigers rise in going 21-6 the past two years was a direct cause of several facility upgrades. Now, Radakovich wants other teams like basketball and baseball to enjoy the same advantages that come from have top-level facilities.

He says he's closing in on a decision whether to renovate aging Littlejohn Coliseum or raze the basketball building and create a new arena on campus. Radakovich renovated the existing basketball facility when he was AD at Georgia Tech.
