SAN ANTONIO — UTSA head football coach Larry Coker announced Friday that he has hired Kevin Brown as an assistant coach. Brown will coach the team’s tight ends and his appointment is effective immediately.

Brown comes to UTSA from Texas State, where he served as the Bobcats’ assistant coach for wide receivers for the past four seasons.

“Kevin Brown is an outstanding addition to our coaching staff,” Coker said. “He is a great recruiter and football coach and is someone we think will fit in very well with our program. We’re very fortunate to have him at UTSA.”

Brown’s hiring gives the Roadrunners seven assistant coaches, as he joins Travis Bush (offensive coordinator/quarterbacks) Tony Jeffery (wide receivers/special teams), Jim Marshall (offensive line), Mike Menefee (defensive backs), Neal Neathery (defensive coordinator/linebackers) and Eric Roark (defensive line) on Coker’s staff.

“This is a great opportunity for me,” Brown said. “I’m really excited about being able to work with Coach Coker and the rest of the staff here. I have a great relationship with Coach Bush from our time together at Texas State, so it will be good to be on the same staff as him again. The sky is the limit for UTSA and I’m just glad to be a part of it now.”

Brown, who previously worked with Bush at Texas State, 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. All totaled, Brown’s wide receivers unit combined to catch 194 passes for 2,505 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2009.

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 his 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 in 2007, his receivers caught 137 passes 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 Houston Bowl after falling to Boise State by a score of 34-31 in the 2003 Fort Worth Bowl.

Brown graduated from TCU with a bachelor’s degree in business management. The Waco native also earned master’s degrees in education administration and liberal arts from TCU. Brown is married to the former Erika Davis.
