Larry Brown resigns, Jankovich taking over at SMU

I'm sure Jank never thought this day would come. I hope he does well.


SMU coach Larry Brown is resigning as coach, he told ESPN's Andy Katz on Friday.

Asked by Katz why he is resigning, Brown did not offer details, saying he first wanted to discuss his decision with his players and their parents.

"I've got nothing else I can say right now," Brown said.

Brown resigned because he wanted a long-term deal but SMU wasn't willing to commit to him in the long term, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman and first reported by CBS Sports.

Tim Jankovich, who was hired as the coach-in-waiting under Brown in 2012, will take over as SMU coach. Jankovich has previously been the head coach at Illinois State and North Texas.

Jankovich's promotion was first reported by CBS Sports and confirmed by Goodman.
