Former Pistons coach Larry Brown may wind up coaching a high school basketball team on Long Island this year.

According to Newsday, Brown, 76, has expressed interest in coaching the boys varsity team at East Hampton high school near his home on Long Island.

"In fairness to Larry, he has maintained that he's not sure but that if he does do it, he wants to be in it 100 percent," East Hampton athletic director Joe Vasile-Cozzo said.

Brown coached at Southern Methodist from 2012 until he resigned last July. The East Hampton coach resigned last week.

Brown is the only coach in basketball history to win both an NCAA title (Kansas, 1988) and an NBA title (Pistons, 2004).
