Staff Directory

Steve Brown joined Randy Sanders' staff as a defensive backs coach on Jan. 11, 2018. 

“This is an exciting time to be at ETSU as we look to build on what the previous staff had in place and make this something special,” said Brown. “I have lived in the state for the last five years and love it here. I have a great relationship with Coach Sanders, and I am excited to join his staff. I have met a lot of great people here at ETSU, and I am looking forward to meeting the players once they arrive back on campus this weekend.”

Brown, a third-round selection by the Houston Oilers in 1983, was the defensive backs coach at Kentucky from 2003-06, before taking over as defensive coordinator from 2007-11. Brown had three Kentucky players selected in the NFL Draft, while numerous Wildcats spent time in the NFL during Brown’s watch.

Brown began his coaching career with the St. Louis Rams where he was on staff when the Rams won Super Bowl XXXIV. Brown was a defensive assistant in 1995, before coaching the cornerbacks from 1996-97 and was the secondary coach from 1998-2000.

Most recently, Brown was the assistant secondary coach with the Tennessee Titans from 2012-15. In his first season, the Titans ranked seventh in the NFL in interceptions – 13 of which came from the secondary. In 2013, Tennessee’s defense led the NFL in fewest passing touchdowns (15).

Brown spent eight seasons with the Houston Oilers where he played in 119 games, totaled 18 interceptions and earned Pro Football Weekly NFL All-Rookie honors in 1983. Brown played collegiately at Oregon, where he was a defensive back and kick returner from 1979-82. Brown earned first team all-Pac-10 honors in 1982, second team honors in 1981 and was a two-time honorable mention in 1979-80.
