Former LSU basketball coach Dale Brown subject of new documentary movie
BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Former LSU basketball coach Dale Brown not only has a new book out but he's also the subject of a new documentary style movie.
The documentary has been in the works for more than four years. It is the brainchild of director Patrick Sheehan and producer Gannon Weaver of Eyeline Films.
As a coach, Brown won 448 games in 25 seasons at LSU and led the Tigers to a pair of final fours. The film's cast includes former LSU stars Shaquille O'neal and Rudy Macklin; as well as actor Matthew McConaughey.
Brown was a consultant to McConaughey during the filming of “We Are Marshall". The actor says he keeps in touch with brown. He even received a photo from the basketball coach with a message to McConaughey's young son.
"It's this great shot of Shaquille and Dale and Dale's leaning over and it says, ‘Levi- one of the reasons Shaq is a great player, he was a great listener. Always listen to your parents and you'll be great," McConaughey says in the documentary.
The Dale Brown movie is available online at and at local Barnes and Noble stores. It's also scheduled for a national release on DVD in February.
