Larry Brown Wants To Remain Active In Basketball
Larry Brown is 70 years old and was fired from his last two coaching jobs—the Charlotte Bobcats showed him the door after a 9-19 start this season—but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still interested in continuing his career.
“Since they fired me in Charlotte, I’ve had the opportunity to watch other people coach. You can really learn a lot,’’ Brown told The Boston Globe. “I think when people make decisions like that, they try to do it for the reasons they think are best, and you’ve got to accept that and move on. You never feel good about someone telling you you failed. But at the end of the day you hope it works out best for everybody.”
Brown, who won an NCAA title at Kansas in 1988 and an NBA title in 2004 with the Detroit Pistons, is open to a return to the college game.
“I just want to stay involved in some way, whether it’s an assistant coach, a management position, coaching. I look in the mirror and I know I’m 70, but inside I don’t feel like that. I still love it.”
