Larry Brown still has eyes for Boston

You may recall that before Rick Pitino got the Celtics gig back in the mid 90's it was supposed to go to Larry Brown. The story was Brown was playing golf with Pitino, mentioned the Celtics offer and Pitino then weaseled in and stole the job. Then back in 2007 Brown discussed joining Doc's staff as an assistant. Well he's interested again according to Yahoo Sports.
Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown has an interest in joining Doc Rivers’ Boston Celtics staff as an assistant coach, assuming Lawrence Frank accepts the Detroit Pistons’ head coaching job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Frank and the Pistons are discussing terms of a deal over the weekend, league sources said, but there is still no agreement in place. However, the Pistons and Frank are both anxious to forge a partnership.

Despite Brown’s credentials and good relationship with Rivers, the Celtics coach is inclined to promote a well-regarded young assistant on his staff – Mike Longabardi – sources said. Nevertheless, Rivers hasn’t ruled out the idea of further discussing a spot for Brown on his bench next season.

Rivers agreed to a new five-year, $35 million contract in June, and the Celtics aren’t dying to pay for a high-profile assistant like they’ve had recently in Tom Thibodeau and Frank, sources said. And yet as one league source close to Brown said, “Larry would do this for less than the going rate.”
The 70 year old Brown seems like a man that just wants to be around the game. He put out some feelers for some college positions, but no one bit. I would be 100% on board with Doc hiring him. I think he would be very happy in an assistant's role similar to old timers before him Johnny Bach with the Bulls and Pete Carril with the Kings. It's a little disappointing that the C's want to go cheap with their assistants (Didn't they just score a huge deal with CSNNE?), but with Brown they'd get a high profile guy for less. This is a no brainer in my opinion. What's yours?
