HBO profiles Larry Brown Tuesday night

Larry Brown, the only coach to win an NCAA and NBA title, keeps going as coach at SMU. He sits down with HBO on the Feb. 25 episode of "Real Sports."

Long Beach High's own Larry Brown, now 73 and working his familiar turnaround magic at SMU, will be profiled Tuesday night on HBO's latest "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel."

Gumbel himself, who has known Brown for 35 years, will do the interviewing honors.

"Larry has been psychoanalyzed in print more than any coach in any sport that I can recall, yet he remains open and honest about who he is and what makes him tick," Gumbel said in an email. "I admire that.”
