Lakers News: Larry Brown Has No Interest In Being Lakers Head Coach

Another big-name can be crossed off the list of candidates for head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers with Larry Brown reportedly not interested in the position, according to Sam Amick of USA Today:

“I’ve always kept in touch with Mitch; I admire the hell out of him,” the 73-year-old Brown told USA TODAY Sports by phone on Tuesday. “I talk to Mitch all the time. … (But) we’re not talking about coaching the Lakers. I’ve read some of the names. They’ve got a long list of good people to choose from, and I’m here at SMU. I want to win a national championship.”

Apparently, Brown wants to be a success on the college level once again. Brown has been coaching ever since becoming an assistant at North Carolina back in 1965 and seemingly has no interest in returning to the NBA level at this time.

Brown is a good friend of Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak and hopes the best for the franchise saying the following via Amick:

“I’m just so thankful SMU gave me this chance,” Brown said. “We have made such progress. We’ve got a bunch of young kids already committed for the future and I’d love to finish it out here. … I’d love to see (the Lakers) get a great coach, because I love Mitch and I love that franchise. But I’m thrilled where I am. I feel so fortunate I’ve had this chance.”

With Brown off the list of candidates, the speculation continues swirl around Los Angeles about who will be the leader on the sidelines for the storied franchise next season and beyond. Byron Scott continues to get mentioned as possibly being atop the list of current candidates, but with the Lakers in no rush to hire Mike D’Antoni’s successor, it remains to be seen who’ll get the job.
