Larry Brown Agrees To Lead SMU’s Men Basketball Program
Hall of fame coach Larry Brown has agreed to become the next head coach for the SMU Mustangs. In a statement released by the university Brown said ”I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to coach at SMU. I’ve built so many relationships in the basketball world and my success has been due to the coaches I’ve played for and the players I’ve coached. … I always thought of myself as a college coach and this gives me a wonderful chance to get back where I started.”
Brown is the only coach to win an NBA championship and an NCAA title, but he hasn’t held a head coaching position since leaving the Charlotte Bobcats in December 2010 after the team’s 9-19 start. SMU last went to the NCAA tournament in 1993, five years after beating Notre Dame in a first-round game.
