Leaving loyalty aside (and since when is that considered in college basketball), this would make a lot of sense for Jerome. He took one of the bottom 10 teams in the country to 20 wins in a year and a half and almost certainly will take a step back this year. To go be an assistant to Larry Brown for 2 years and then get a head job at SMU is his best track to the big time. I am assuming, of course, that he gets first assistant---a 2nd assistant's job is a non-starter.
