ESPN.com's Jason King reports that former NBA coach Larry Brown has agreed to coach Southern Methodist University's men's basketball team next season. The move was expected to be announced officially as soon as Tuesday.
Brown, a successful coach in the NCAA, ABA, and NBA since 1972, coached the 2003/04 Detroit Pistons to a world championship. He last coached in the NBA with the Charlotte Bobcats in 2010, but was fired partway into the 2010/11 season. Brown had previously been believed to be interested in the Portland Trail Blazers' vacant general manager position.
