Brown had a brief NFL career as a player after being selected in the 6th round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He started his coaching career as a strength and conditioning coach for the Bulldogs in 2011 and has since spent stops at Wisconsin, Georgia, Miami (FL) and South Carolina, among others.
Brown has experience as an OC at the college ranks after holding the OC and RBs coach roles for Miami from 2016-18.
As a player, Brown rushed for 2,646 yards with the Bulldogs, a mark that still ranks 10th all-time in program history.
