Could/would Larry Brown coach at N C St?

47 posts in this topic

Larry Brown is too damn old to be coaching in college (coaching in general) again. State needs to hire someone that can come in and build their program back the glory days and that may take a few years.

Basically, where the LB rumors are coming from are that he was recently featured in an article stating that he wants to come back and coach college basketball again. He said his selling points to counter his age would be that his influence would bring in an all star cast for his assistant coaches and one of those assistants would end up taking over the team after he retired.

IMO he is targeting his old job...UCLA. That is the only job out there that would make any sense for him to go back to IMO if Ben Howland were to be fired. IDT he wants any part of NC State. If he did then I'd welcome him but lets face it...He's a Tar Heel.

If State were to hire Barnes, I would just hate them that much more. I can't stand that guy.

My most hated coaches:

1) K

2) Calipari

3) Barnes

Might as well move Pearl up on that list. He is a good coach and knows a little about rebuilding a program. I doubt he will make the same mistakes again.

He'll just make new and different ones.

IDT there is any way State could afford to hire Pearl. Personally, I don't think what he did at Tennessee was that bad, especially with what has reportedly gone on at Carolina, UGA, etc...Basically if he had just been straight up with the NCAA then he would have never been fired. Hell he might not have been fired at all if he had done things exactly the same but did them at a different school. Tennessee is just feeling too much pressure right now with the Kiffin deal and then this happened. So they had to do something.

However, with regard to the State job most people don't realize that the sanctions we had after V were enacted BY NCSU. The NCAA didn't slap those sanctions on us, our BOT did that. They have been trying in earnest to keep their noses clean for the last 20 years and it has worked...at the cost of athletic success.

Right now I have no clue who the list is at NCSU. The only name that I consistently hear is Sean Miller. Yow is playing this thing really really close to the vest and I don't expect anyone to know anything concrete until the name is signed on the dotted line.

deb yow wont hire pearl, im starting to like shaka smart because he described his basketball team as "havok". We can beat any team in the nation talent athletically, we just need a plan. i dont want to see guys standing around while the pg slowly dribbles the ball.
