Brown comes to STLCOP after serving four years under former St. Louis University men’s basketball head coach and Sporting News’ National Coach of the Year, Jim Crews. Brown was an essential part of the coaching staff that attended back-to-back NCAA tournaments breaking both the school record for wins in a season and consecutive wins. The Billikens won back to back A-10 championships and saw their first ever Top 10 national ranking.
Brown has coached 5 all-conference players and one All-American and conference player of the year. Most recently, Brown has served as a personal skills instructor for dozens of professional players in Europe and abroad, including Miami Heat power forward Willie Reed.
The former Billiken played four seasons under Coach Brad Soderberg (Virginia) and the late Coach Rick Majerus. Brown’s 49 percent shooting mark from 3-point range ranks second in Billiken history in a single season. After college, Brown played professionally in Mexico, Venezuela, Cyprus and Spain.
