Brett Brown has stepped down as head coach of the Australian national basketball team.

Brown is also the assistant coach of the San Antonio Spurs.

"I inherited a strong Boomer culture moulded by many committed, outstanding coaches and players that have come before me," Brown said in a statement.
"My staff and I are confident that the current program is well placed to again be brought forward."
"I leave with fond memories of a group of players who played with a spirit and toughness that earned the respect of the global basketball fraternity."
"I am proud to have been their coach."
"The basketball community should be excited to have our current group of core players and new talent emerging throughout the country."
