Larry Brown coming back to coach the Bobcats

Larry Brown is back as an NBA coach. Again. According to the Associated Press, the Charlotte Bobcats, who are part-owned by longtime Larry Brown supporter and fellow former Tar Heel Michael Jordan, will hire Brown to be their next coach. Brown had been hinting for months that he wanted to return to coaching after how poorly his final stint with the New York Knicks ended. The Bobcats will be the 9th NBA team the 67 year old has coached. He replaces Sam Vincent who the Bobcats fired after a terrible season in which they won only 32 games.

Brown resigned from his position as executive vice president of the Philadelphia 76ers last week and all indications were that he was going to end up back on an NBA bench soon. I hope that this is Brown's final stop, and I hope it goes better than the train wreck that was his time with the Knicks. Brown will always hold a special place in the hearts of Sixer fans for his part in the magical run during the 2001 season.
