PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Larry Brown wants one more stop on his nomadic coaching career.
Brown resigned as Philadelphia's executive vice president on Thursday with the intent to pursue a coaching job at the NBA or college level. Brown has been a winner at every stop, yet hasn't coached since a bitter split with the Knicks and then-team president Isiah Thomas after his only season in New York in 2005-06.
``He has the taste of coaching back in his mouth,'' Brown's agent, Joe Glass, said. ``It would be refreshing to have a situation going that he could enjoy, rather than the last one, to say the least.''
Glass said Brown, who won an NBA title with Detroit and a college title with Kansas, would not rule out returning to either level.
Brown rejoined the Sixers last season as consultant and was hired in January 2007 as a VP more than three years after he quit his coaching job to take the same position in Detroit. Brown resigned as coach of the 76ers in 2003 after six often-turbulent seasons in which he helped rebuild a struggling franchise. He led the Sixers to the 2001 NBA finals.
``Larry was born to coach and this is something he and I talked about when I took the job here back in December, so it comes as no surprise to me,'' 76ers president Ed Stefanski said.
