SMU Basketball Coach Search: Larry Brown Will Make Decision Soon, According To Report

The SMU Mustangs are currently seeking out candidates for the vacant position as new head coach for the men's basketball team. The school hopes that a new coach can help revitalize the program. To that end, the first candidate they've significantly pursued is former NBA, ABA and NCAA head coach Larry Brown.

According to Andy Katz of ESPN Dallas/Ft. Worth, Brown has an interview with the school on Sunday and is expected to give the school his decision this week. Another finalist for the position that was interviews on Saturday is Tony Benford, currently an assistant coach at Marquette.

While both Brown and SMU have expressed a mutual interest in one another, Katz states that there is no guarantee he will agree to taking on the role. Either way, the Mustangs should know within the next few days whether they'll be welcoming a Hall of Fame coach in the fall.
