Brown re­turns to NBA to coach Jor­dan-led Bob­cats

The Covington News - - Sports -

CHAR­LOTTE, N.C. — Larry Brown wanted a chance to res­ur­rect his vagabond, Hall of Fame coach­ing ca­reer. Michael Jor­dan needed a vet­eran teacher and a big hire to res­cue his sink­ing rep­u­ta­tion as an NBA ex­ec­u­tive.

The two for­mer North Carolina play­ers teamed up Tues­day when Jor­dan in­tro­duced Brown as coach of the Char­lotte Bob­cats — his ninth NBA job.

The 67- year- old Brown re­places Sam Vin­cent, whom Jor­dan hired last year de­spite no NBA head coach­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Vin­cent, who was fired Satur­day, strug­gled to find con­sis­tent ro­ta­tions and clashed with play­ers in a 32- 50 sea­son.
