Southern Methodist University could soon have a new men's basketball coach on its hands.
According to a tweet by ESPNDallas, Hall of Famer Larry Brown will be the next Mustangs coach:
Brown, who interviewed for the position on Sunday, has gone on record in recent years saying he wants to return to the college coaching game. In his last NCAA coaching gig in 1988, he led Kansas to a national championship before leaving for the NBA.
Brown also won a title at the professional level as the head coach of the Pistons in 2004.
The Mustangs are in search of a coach after firing Matt Doherty in March after six seasons at the helm. They need someone with the pedigree to take them to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1993 and to help them prepare for a move to the Big East conference in 2013.
