Proof that Larry Brown is serious about getting back into coaching came via Thursday's abrupt resignation from the Sixers.
He's been the executive vice president in Philadelphia since January 2007, case you didn't know.
And now he's unemployed, though I can't imagine he'll be that way long.
The hottest speculation has Brown as a serious candidate at Stanford, but I'm told that's probably not a likely destination. Was Stanford interested? Of course. But taking a Pac-10 job at a school with strict academic standards wouldn't play to Brown's strengths. So I'd be surprised if that's the route he takes given how there are probably some NBA franchises maneuvering to hire him.
If college is what Brown desires, though, perhaps Grambling State would be suitable.
GSU is one of the few Division I schools still looking for a coach.
And the application process seems simple enough.
I mean, all the details about how to apply are right there on the school's official web site, and were you even aware that Division I schools solicited applications on their web sites? Yeah, me neither. It seems kind of odd. But it might be time for Stanford to give it a try because, you know, practice opens in less than six months.
