Larry Brown is interested in a return to coaching, and he'd like to go back to the college ranks.
“I was a college coach and did OK,” Brown told Yahoo! Sports on Saturday. “I was a pro coach and did reasonably well.
“Kids want to be in the NBA, and if you can coach and teach and get them ready for the NBA and you’re at a good school, I think you’d have an unbelievable head start on a lot of people. I’ve always tried to get players better, whether as a college coach or a pro coach. Two minutes on the floor on the first day of practice, players know whether you can coach or not.”
Brown was last on the college sidelines when he coached Kansas to the 1988 NCAA Championship.
While I don't doubt Brown's desire or even his ability, Tennessee may want to look for someone who would be more than just a stop-gap solution.
The following coaches could make for an interesting list for Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton to consider.
