Could Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown be returning to the bench? It seems like that is a possibility if the LIU-Brooklyn basketball program gets its way.
After firing Jack Perri following five seasons, the Blackbirds, according to a report from Jon Rothstein of Fan Rag Sports, reached out to Brown to gauge his interest in the vacancy.
Brown is expected to meet with the university about the job in the “near future.”

Brown was out of coaching last season after resigning from his post as head coach of the SMU Mustangs, but he reportedly has interest in returning to the game. The 76-year-old coach has a 94–39 overall record at the college level and a 1,275-965 record as a professional coach in the ABA and NBA.
This season, LIU-Brooklyn went 20-12 and finished in second-place in the Northeast Conference.
