Larry Brown Rumors: SMU Target Linked With Portland GM Job

The folks over at SMU are getting a good preview of the joy it is dealing with Hall of Fame coach and legendary itinerant Larry Brown, as the school has still not come to terms with a contract despite rumors confirming the deal leaking out earlier in the week.

If the latest reports are true, Brown is reportedly dragging his feet due to interest in a job in the NBA, specifically the open GM position of the Portland Trail Blazers:

A front-office job isn't as much of a daily grind as coaching, especially when it comes to the level of hours a college coach must put in recruiting, something which Brown might not be prepared for, given that he hasn't coached outside of the NBA in nearly 25 years.

For all the latest Larry Brown rumors, stay tuned to the exclusive SB Nation Dallas storystream.
