The move comes as SMU has faced NCAA sanctions, including a loss of scholarships, for academic improprieties, and Brown was seeking a long-term contract after this upcoming season. Also, SMU is located in Dallas, which is healing Friday morning from its loss of five police officers in a reportedly racially charged shooting.
SMU AD Rick Hart tweeted out a statement in response to the recent news and Brown's sudden departure.
