Larry Brown’s abrupt resignation at Southern Methodist University is opening the door for Tim Jankovich.
Jankovich left Illinois State in 2014 to become SMU’s coach-in-waiting. He served as the associate coach next to the 75-year-old Brown. When Brown didn’t get the long term contract offer he sought from the Dallas school, he stepped down Friday.
It appears Jankovich’s four-year wait to take over the SMU program is over. Jankovich was 105-64 in five seasons as ISU’s coach.
