Hall of Famer Larry Brown is resigning as head basketball coach at Southern Methodist University, he told ESPN on Friday.
"I'm stepping down," he said, adding, “I've got nothing else to say right now. I have to text the parents of my players."
When asked if the decision had anything to do with his health, the 75-year-old Brown said, “I’m OK.”
SMU Athletic Director Rick Hart confirmed to the Associated Press that Brown was leaving. Hart said the university had offered Brown a contract extension through 2020.
