During yesterday’s press conference to discuss his 2014 recruiting class, Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino stated that he was still going to make one more addition to his coaching staff.
Petrino noted that he’s looking to add a secondary coach who will also serve as the program’s recruiting coordinator. According to reports, Coach Petrino has found his guy.
Pete Roussel of CoachingSearch.com was the first to report that Alabama secondary coach Greg Brown would leave Nick Saban’s staff to take the same position at Louisville.
The University of Louisville hasn’t confirmed the hire, but it appears to be in the works. Multiple other national outlets are also reporting Brown’s hiring.
Roussel’s report states that Brown will specifically coach the safeties at Louisville while Terrell Buckley will be in charge of the cornerbacks.
Brown spent just one season on Nick Saban’s staff at Alabama, He was previously the defensive coordinator at Colorado from 2010-2012. Prior to that gig, Brown had been specifically coaching defensive backs since 1981.
The 56-year old Denver native has spent time Wyoming, Purdue, Colorado, Arizona, and in the NFL with the Buccaneers, 49ers, Oilers, Chargers, 49ers, and Saints.
