Report: Brown accepts SMU coaching job
Larry Brown has agreed to accept the vacant head coaching job at Southern Methodist, ESPN.com reported on Tuesday, citing sources.
Brown, himself, denied the report to ESPN’s Andy Katz.
“At this point I have not been offered the job so I cannot have accepted it,” Brown told Katz. “I don’t do anything without (agent) Joe Glass’ blessing. And as of Tuesday night, he hasn’t talked to (SMU athletic director) Steve Orsini.”
The well-traveled Brown has not coached since he was fired by the Charlotte Bobcats 28 games into the 2010-11 season.
The 71-year-old Brown last coached at the college level in 1988, leading Kansas University to the national championship.
Brown is the only coach to win an NCAA and NBA championship, and also the only coach to bring eight different NBA teams to the postseason.
SMU is seeking a replacement for Matt Doherty, who was fired after six seasons.
