Brown 'serious' about SMU job


DALLAS — Larry Brown is serious about getting back to coaching and the vacancy at SMU.

Brown said Wednesday that he hasn't yet been offered the job, but had spoken again with SMU athletic director Steve Orsini since they first met on Monday. The 71-year-old Hall of Fame coach said he expected his long-time agent, Joe Glass, to have further conversations with Orsini.

"They haven't offered me the job, I haven't accepted the job, and I would never do it without Joe's blessing," Brown said.

SMU, which is moving from Conference USA to the much tougher Big East in 2013, 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.

"I'm serious. I wouldn't have gone to visit to SMU if I wasn't interested," Brown said.
