Brown comes to Morris College with over 20 years of coaching experience as an Athletic Director and a Head Basketball Coach. Most recently, he spent the past six seasons as the head coach at North Charleston High School in Charleston, SC. 

Brown, a Sumter native and a graduate of Sumter High School joined Morris College in June 2021. “I would like to see Morris College become known as one of the top three Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)’s in basketball.  I have already recruited some of the top talent from around the country to Morris and they will be on campus in the Fall [of 2021]. This includes several kids from Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi,” said Brown.  

As a coach, Brown has had an opportunity to be the coach who has coached students who became the player of the year for three consecutive years. This along with some of his other accomplishments has also lead him to earn the title of “Coach of the Year” three times in the past six years. Along with maintaining all aspects of the Division One Men’s basketball program within the policy of the institution and National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIC), Brown will also be responsible for recruiting students, attending college career fairs and community events to assist with Morris College’s Enrollment Management, Records, and Financial Aid departments.

“I am excited and just looking forward to working with an already great group of admission counselors as well as excited to build a program that will be known outside of South Carolina,” said Brown. While at North Charleston High School, Brown also launched a Business 101 Mentoring Program for young men and was very active in the Charleston community.

Brown earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Troy University on March 7, 2021, and officially started on June 1, 2021.
