(Cleveland) The Cavaliers are in search mode for a new head coach, and the

search could mean the return of a familiar face.  Former Cavs head coach Mike

Brown met with the Cavs Sunday night and it appears he may be the frontrunner

for the job. Brown who was fired by the Lakers just 5 games into the past season

holds many of the qualities, that the Cavs are seeking in their next bench

boss.  He has had success as a head coach. He is defensive minded and

considered to be a very good teacher. 

Brown is also very fond of Cleveland and had already made plans for his family

to return to northeast Ohio to reside whether he becomes the Cavs coach

or not.

The Cavs may have to act quickly to hire Brown, as he could have several

suitors based on his winning resume.
