Brown takes over as the head coach for track and field in 2019-20.

Brown spent the last two seasons as the track and field head coach at Scranton, serving as the program’s first head coach. He led the Royals program from its infancy, including guiding Caroline Banas to All-America honors in the indoor high jump in the program’s first season in 2018.

Last season, Brown guided a pair of Scranton athletes to All-Landmark Conference honors for finishing in the top-two in their individual events during the indoor season and three to all-conference accolades outdoor that included coaching Matt Kinback to the 800-meter championship. Kinback was also a UTFCCCA All-Mideast Region selection.

Prior to his arrival at Scranton, Brown spent the previous four seasons as an assistant coach at Stevens Institute of Technology, where he coached the jumpers, hurdlers, vaulters, javelin throwers and multi-event athletes. He also assisted with creating training programs for team members, weight training, recruiting and team schedules, as well as assisting the cross country team and working as an admissions counselor. While there, he coached Gladys Njoku, a national champion high jumper.

Prior to Stevens, Brown spent two seasons as an assistant coach at St. Lawrence, working directly with sprinters and hurdlers, assisting in the development of a strength and conditioning program, leading film review sessions and was heavily involved in the recruiting process.

Brown also spent two seasons as an assistant at Moravian from 2009-11, and one at Gwynedd-Mercy during the 2008-09 season. He worked with the jumpers and hurdlers in both programs.

Over his coaching tenure, Brown has coached 10 All-Americans and 43 national qualifiers.

A 2010 graduate of Moravian, he was a standout student-athlete. Brown was a five-time USTFCCCA Track or Field Athlete of the Year and two-time national champion, earning the gold in the indoor long jump in 2008 and the decathlon outdoors that same year. He was also an All-American in the 55-meter hurdles in 2007 and 2008.

His 7,192 points in the 2008 decathlon still ranks in the all-time top-10 in Division III history.

Brown earned his bachelor of arts in business from Moravian and earned a masters in educational leadership from St. Lawrence in 2013.
