Al Skinner A Candidate For Vacant Brown Job?

Interesting tidbit in Andy Katz's latest 3-point shot on Al Skinner becoming a candidate for the vacant Brown men's basketball coaching position.

Al Skinner has emerged as a candidate for the vacant opening at Brown. This would be a home run hire for the Ivy League school that fired Jesse Agel. Skinner is Boston College's all-time winningest coach. Brown wouldn't find a better tactical coach than Skinner. Skinner would keep Brown assistant T.J. Sorrentine, the former Vermont guard who is popular with the current players. If Brown were Ivy League smart the coaching search wouldn't last any longer since Agel was fired March 5.

Brown sounds like a great opportunity for Skinner who would get to stay local. He knows the area, particularly Rhode Island, where he began his head coaching career at URI in 1988. And it's Brown, so the expectations would be pretty low since, you know, it's Brown.

Harvard coach Tommy Amaker has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in recent seasons, going from coaching at two major conference programs -- Seton Hall and Michigan -- to coaching in the Ivy League. This might be just the opportunity that Skinner needs to resurrect his career. I, for one, am hoping Skinner lands on his feet in Providence.

Though if Skinner does land the job, I highly doubt we'd see the Bears visiting Conte Forum to take on the Eagles any time soon.
