Larry Brown has returned to college coaching. Brown was formally introduced Monday as the men's basketball coach at SMU, his first college job in nearly a quarter century.
The 71-year-old Hall of Famer joked about his age and said he looked forward to coaching "quality basketball with quality student-athletes" at a school that has long struggled to be relevant in Dallas and nationally. SMU has not won an NCAA Tournament game since 1988 - the same year Brown won a national title at Kansas in his last season in college.
