A handful of days after the reports first surfaced, Louisville has added a very experienced piece to its revamped coaching staff.
The UofL confirmed in a press release Monday afternoon that Greg Brown has been hired and completes (again) Bobby Petrino‘s staff. Brown will coach the Cardinals safeties, while Terrell Buckley will coach cornerbacks.
Additionally, Brown will serve as recruiting coordinator.
“I’m thrilled to be able to hire Greg Brown to complete our staff,” Petrino said in a statement. “Greg has coached some outstanding players at the NFL level and has served as a defensive coordinator in college. He brings a great deal of experience and knowledge to the defensive staff and is also an outstanding recruiter. To be able to complete our staff with the caliber of coach like Greg Brown says a lot about the University of Louisville.”
Brown spent the 2013 season with the Tide, replacing Jeremy Pruitt after he left Tuscaloosa for what turned out to be a one-year stint as Florida State’s defensive coordinator.
Brown’s departure — he actually resigned in mid-January — means three Saban assistants who were on his staff in 2013 won’t return for the 2014 season.
