Brett Brown Steps Down As Head Coach Of Australian National Team 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Oct 13, 2020 12:33 pm

Brett Brown has stepped down as head coach of the Australian national team.


Brown was hired to coach the team for the Tokyo Olympics last November.


"It is important for me to give Basketball Australia, the Coach, and players, the necessary time for a full and thorough Olympic Games preparation in the event that the Games do proceed.


“This was a difficult decision which did not come easy. My past experiences with the current Boomer players are among my most memorable as a coach. To coach the Boomers was a privilege and an honour. I will work closely with Basketball Australia in any way that I can to ensure a smooth and successful transition,” concluded Brown.

Brett has always been well regarded for his relationship with players. I was disappointed when he returned from some temporary FO duties back to coaching a couple of seasons back. There's a place for this guy, somewhere.
