Larry Brown, the Hall of Fame head coach who resigned from SMU in July, might return to the sideline — for the East Hampton High School Bonackers on Long Island, New York.
While staying at his summer home in East Hampton, Brown learned the local high school unexpectedly needed a new boys’ varsity coach after the newly hired one resigned last week. Brown could become what he had envisioned as a youngster: a high school coach. “Tonight, I’m going to the high school and see the kids and talk to the [athletic director],” Brown, 76, told ESPN on Tuesday. “I wish I could tell you when I’m going to make a decision. I’m hopeful, it’s pretty close.”
