Kevin Brown is in his third season as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach and fourth year in the Alamo City overall. Brown coached the program’s tight ends during its inaugural 2011 campaign.
In 2013, Brown helped lead UTSA to a 7-5 overall record, including victories over a pair of bowl teams. The Roadrunners finished second in the West Division with a 6-2 mark in their first season in Conference USA. He mentored an offense that averaged 417.8 yards (175.4 rush/242.4 pass) and 25.6 points per game, with his quarterbacks combining for 2,909 yards and 13 touchdowns through the air and 371 yards and seven scores on the ground. Offensive guard Scott Inskeep collected second-team All-Conference USA honors, while offensive tackle Cody Harris, tight end Cole Hubble, receiver Kam Jones and quarterback Eric Soza all were named honorable mention all-conference.
Brown helped guide UTSA to an 8-4 overall record and a 3-3 mark in its first and only season in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) in 2012. The campaign was highlighted by historic wins against South Alabama, the program’s first road and Football Bowl Subdivision victory, and New Mexico State, its first league win. The offense averaged 31.2 points and 390.2 yards (159.2 rush/231.0 pass) per game and scored 44 touchdowns. He tutored the quarterbacks to 2,772 yards and 23 TDs through the air against only six interceptions, as the group combined for a 141.46 efficiency rating. Inskeep earned second-team All-WAC accolades.
The Waco native helped the Roadrunners to a 4-6 record in 2011 as the tight ends coach. The offense averaged 26.6 points and 364.5 yards (144.8 rush/219.7 pass) per game and scored 31 touchdowns during their inaugural campaign. UTSA’s tight ends accounted for 262 receiving yards and a pair of TDs, with freshman David Morgan tallying 214 and both scores on 13 catches. The unit also helped the Birds accumulate 1,448 yards and 16 TDs on the ground.
Brown came to UTSA from Texas State, where he served as the Bobcats’ receivers coach for the previous four seasons.
He helped the Bobcats set numerous school records during his four years in San Marcos. In 2009, wide receiver Da’Marcus Griggs set the newest standard with 80 receptions en route to earning second-team All-Southland Conference honors. Brown’s wide receivers combined to catch 203 passes for 2,657 yards and 21 touchdowns that season.
A year earlier, Cameron Luke was named a third-team All-American after posting 73 receptions for two more records of 1,268 yards and 17 touchdowns. Luke broke the original record that he set in 2007 with 60 catches for 1,035 yards and 12 TDs and was named first-team all-conference.
Brown’s corps combined to catch 185 passes for 2,800 yards and 27 touchdowns in 2008, and a year earlier, his receivers hauled in 137 throws for 1,825 yards and 17 scores.
Prior to his tenure at Texas State, Brown was an offensive graduate assistant coach at TCU, his alma mater, for three seasons. Among his responsibilities at TCU were working with the Horned Frogs’ offensive linemen, film breakdown of opposing defenses and charting the opposition’s defense from the press box on game days.
During his playing career as a wide receiver at TCU from 1998-2002, Brown caught 39 passes for 567 yards, an average of 14.5 yards per reception. He caught a career-high 16 passes for 208 yards as a senior in 2002 and also had four touchdown receptions during his career.
Brown was a member of five bowl teams. The Horned Frogs defeated USC, 28-19, at the 1998 Sun Bowl and East Carolina, 28-14, in the 1999 Mobile Alabama Bowl. Brown capped his career as a member of TCU’s 2002 Conference USA championship team, which beat Colorado State, 17-3, in the AXA Liberty Bowl.
The Horned Frogs made three more bowl appearances while Brown served on the coaching staff. TCU downed Northern Illinois, 37-7, in the 2006 Poinsettia Bowl and edged Iowa State, 27-24, in the 2005 EV1.net Houston Bowl after falling to Boise State by a score of 34-31 in the 2003 Fort Worth Bowl.
Brown graduated from TCU in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in business management and earned his master’s degrees in education administration and liberal arts from TCU.
He is married to the former Erika Davis.
