Hall of Famer Larry Brown reportedly is interested in LIU-Brooklyn's head men's basketball coaching vacancy, but the school reportedly doesn't have him on the radar as a potential hire.
Jeff Goodman of ESPN reported Brown is "not a viable candidate at LIU Brooklyn," citing a source, adding that the interest was from Brown and not the school.
The news came after Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reported that the 76-year-old Brooklyn, New York, native was expected to meet with the school soon after being targeted as a potential hire.
Brown has more than four decades of head coaching experience at the collegiate and NBA levels, and he last coached for four seasons at SMU before stepping down following the 2015-16 season.
Brown went 94-39 with the Mustangs.
Per Rothstein, a source indicated Brown "yearns to get back to coaching."
Brown is the only coach in basketball history to win both an NCAA and NBA championship, accomplishing the feat with the Kansas Jayhawks and Detroit Pistons, respectively.
LIU-Brooklyn went 20-12 this season as part of the Northeast Conference and last reached the NCAA tournament in 2013.
