For the 13th time in the last 40 years, Larry Brown is between head coaching jobs. He's been unemployed since he left the Charlotte Bobcats in December 2010, after a 9-19 start. Lately, the college-ABA-NBA-college-NBA-college-NBA legend has been traveling with the Kansas basketball team and telling anyone who will listen that he wants to coach again. Now he may have a specific gig in mind:
Amid a report that he's shown interest in SMU coaching vacancy, Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown said Wednesday that he'd like to return to basketball in some form.
Brown told ESPN.com's Dana O'Neil that he has not been contacted by the Mustangs but declined to answer whether he had reached out to the school. The Brown-SMU link was reported earlier by the Dallas Morning News.
"I'm not going to be politicking for a job right now," the 71-year-old Brown said. "I'd like to get back involved in the game in some capacity. Whether that's as a coach, assistant, running a team or just as a resource, I don't care.
Larry Brown is not politicking for a job. He is just working the press to let it be known that he is a job candidate. There is still time for someone else to hire him before he goes to SMU.
