DALLAS (April 18, 2012) -- Larry Brown says he has serious interest in the coaching vacancy at SMU. He says he has not yet been offered the job.
Brown told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he had spoken again to SMU athletic director Steve Orsini since they first met on Monday. The 71-year-old Hall of Fame coach expects his agent to have further conversations with Orsini.
Brown says his desire is to get back to coaching, and that he has a lot of respect for SMU, which is moving in 2013 from Conference USA to the Big East. SMU fired Matt Doherty last month after six seasons.
The Mustangs haven't won an NCAA tournament game since 1988, the year Brown led Kansas to the national championship in his last season as a college coach.
