Larry Brown tells SLAM and CSN Chicago‘s Aggrey Sam that he’d love to get back into the coaching game: “On his own coaching future: ‘Well, I could have gone to Stanford three years ago and I didn’t want to take my kids out of school, and they live in Philly, but I want to coach again, badly. Now, I’ve been lucky because I’ve got so many guys that have played for me and coached with me that are coaches, in college and pro, that keep me involved. I’ve been to Villanova; I go there all the time. Mark Turgeon, who played for me and coached with me, is at Maryland. Bill Self coached with me; he’s at Kansas. John lets me come to Kentucky. Tad Boyle’s at Colorado. I’ve got so many guys that are in college and pro that have included me and kind of used me as a resource without me pushing myself on them. I don’t want to ever do that. I want to get back badly. I just don’t know. The direction the NBA’s going, it seems like they just want to get young ex-players and if you look around the league, there’s not a lot of older coaches anymore. ‘Pop’ [Gregg Popovich] and maybe [Rick] Adelman, but most of these guys are younger, so I don’t know if I fit that mold, but I still believe that I have something to offer and I was disappointed the way Charlotte ended. We go to the playoffs and then, 14 games later, I’m fired. They get rid of Raymond [Felton] and get rid of Tyson [Chandler], and I have Kwame Brown, Gerald Henderson and [Dominic] McGuire, all of those guys hurt, missing training camp. So, I’m disappointed the way that ended, but I’d love to get back if somebody gave me a chance. But I won’t politic for it. I hope it happens, but I don’t want to see somebody lose their job to get another job, so that’s always sensitive.'”
