Larry Brown to SMU?

As the search for a new basketball coach at SMU has dragged on into it's third week, a coaching legend has made his interest known. Larry Brown, the only coach to win both the NCAA and NBA championship, said he's not "politicking for a job," but he also refused to say whether he's spoken to the school about the position. This means he has.

In my mind, Larry Brown has to be one of the top 10 coaches of all time. Yes, all time. SMU is one of the worst programs in Texas -- especially in relation to its potential. If they hire Larry Brown, they're relevant.

Now, Larry Brown is 71, and he doesn't stay in one place for too long. But when people haven't cared for over a decade, you don't get to pick and choose among the Brad Stevens' and Shaka Smarts of the world.

Larry Brown can coach, there's no questioning that. And I'd be willing to bet that seeing Larry Brown in your living room would go some way in recruiting as well. Here's hoping SMU goes after the legend rather than the dime-a-dozen types they began the process targeting.
