Im confident that he will continue to mentor and train our student-athletes to become leaders on the court, in the classroom and in their Christian walk. He has been a part of successful coaching staffs at every level and Im excited that hes bringing that leadership to Lipscomb.

Im honored to be named the head basketball coach at Lipscomb, said Brown. Lipscomb is a special place for me and my family. Im excited to represent the university and be part of its growth, and I look forward to building on the traditions of excellence at Lipscomb. Im very fortunate to be able to coach in a Christian atmosphere, and I thank Philip Hutcheson and Dr. Lowry for this opportunity.
