08:05 AM ET 04.14 | Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown is finally in the mix at SMU, and it's serious, according to a source. Brown, 71, said weeks ago that he would be interested in the job and is eager to get back into coaching after SportsDay first reported Brown's interest in SMU, according to sources. Meanwhile, SMU athletic director Steve Orsini went after an array of successful sitting head coaches such as Marquette's Buzz Williams and Long Beach State's Dan Monson, and struck out. With pressure building to make a hire a month after Matt Doherty was fired, SMU is also believed to also have interest in Marquette assistant Tony Benford. North Texas coach Johnny Jones is no longer an option, as he accepted the LSU job Friday.

Side note, North Texas loses men's and woman's coaches to LSU and UTx, respectively. Tells you their AD is doing the homework
