Brett Brown has stepped down as head coach of the Australian national team.
Brown was hired to coach the team for the Tokyo Olympics this past summer, but the Olympics were postponed until next summer because of COVID-19 and the Sixers fired him at the end of August. The next NBA season won’t start until January at the earliest and as a result, the season and next summer’s Olympics could overlap which could create a scheduling conflict for Brown. The veteran coach is looking to return to the NBA either as an assistant or as a head coach so this decision makes sense for both parties.
