Brown joined the University of Southern Indiana faculty in
1970, becoming the men's golf coach in 1977 and the women's golf coach
in 1995. He recently retired from the USI Physical Education
Department and as the academic advisor to USI student athletes.
Entering 2002-03, Brown will be the chair of the NCAA Division II Champion- ship committee for men's golf.
Brown's Screaming Eagles made their first appearance in the NCAA Division II National Championship in 1996, and made five consecutive appearances in the NCAA II North Regional between 1996 and 2000. During his tenure, Brown has coached nine All-Great Lakes Valley Conference players and five Scholar All-Americans.
In 1995, Brown helped organize the women's golf program and has served as coach until 2000. The women's program has improved each year, competing for the GLVC title the last two seasons, taking second in 1999 and third in 1998. In the 1999 GLVC championships, Brown's Eagles led after the first two rounds and finished only four strokes off the pace. The team completed the 1999-2000 season with a 62-38 record in 12 tournaments.
Beyond their accomplishments on the golf course, Brown's teams excel in the classroom. Since the creation of the Academic All-GLVC award in 1991, the golf program has had eight men's players and two women's players named to individual conference teams for academics.
During his years at the University, Brown has served as head baseball coach, assistant basketball coach, sports information director, and intramural director. He retired from the USI Physical Education Department after the 1999-2000 school year.
Brown received a bachelor's degree in physical education from Emporia State University (Emporia, Kansas) in 1962, and a master's degree in physical education from Indiana University in 1968.
