Larry Brown hungry to coach again !

19

Yearning to return: It makes perfect sense that a former coach with 17- and 15-year-old children would be feeling the itch to get back on the sideline. But Larry Brown is 71, is in the Hall of Fame and has already accomplished an unmatched feat, becoming the only coach to take teams to NCAA and NBA titles. But on a visit with Brown at his Bryn Mawr, Pa., home, the New York Daily News' Wayne Coffey finds a restless Brown still very much in the mood to coach again. "It’s been hard, oh man," Brown tells Coffey. "I’ve been active every day of my life, doing something I love. I don’t know if it’s an emptiness, (but) it’s a heck of an adjustment." Brown has not had an official job since he parted ways with the Charlotte Bobcats 15 months ago. Brown takes issue with the way the decision by owner Michael Jordan was characterized at the time. "Michael said it was a mutual thing, but it wasn’t mutual at all; I was fired," Brown says. "that was pretty devastating." Brown has spent some of his time hanging around Villanova practices, and also visiting other top college programs. Last year, he got an interview for the Minnesota Timberwolves job that went to Rick Adelman. "I just want to be back in the game," Brown says. But he just can't get the opportunity.
