SMU officially ends Jankovich's wait as Brown's successor

DALLAS (AP) The wait is over for Tim Jankovich to be SMU's head coach.

SMU formally named Jankovich as head coach Monday, three days after Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown abruptly resigned.

"I'm still sad and a little bit emotional about it, but at the same time, incredibly excited about the opportunity here for me and my staff," Jankovich said Monday night. "That part is awfully exciting, and (I'm) feeling all those emotions that you expect."
