ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - UCF women's basketball associate head coach Greg Brown, who helped the Knights to two Conference USA championships during his five-year tenure, has accepted the head coaching position at Lipscomb. Brown returns to his alma mater where he also began his coaching career as a student assistant under former Bisons men's basketball head coach Don Meyer.
Brown becomes the fourth head coach in the history of Lipscomb's women's basketball program. The Division I program in Nashville is a member of the Atlantic Sun and has an enrollment of 4,018.
"Lipscomb has definitely hit a home run with the hiring of Greg Brown to lead its women's basketball program," UCF head coach Joi Williams said. "Greg is a man with great integrity and character. He has worked extremely hard to prepare himself for this opportunity. I feel very fortunate that we've been able to work side by side for the last five years and accomplish some very special things at UCF.
"Greg is a great leader and a passionate teacher of the game. I know he will be committed to cultivating an environment of success and building a championship program."
Brown arrived at UCF in 2007 and served as an assistant coach before he was promoted to associate head coach in 2009. He helped the Knights achieve greatness with two NCAA Tournament berths while guiding seven Knights to All-Conference USA honors, two Knights to C-USA Tournament MVP recognitions and four scorers to the 1,000-point milestone.
UCF also witnessed sustained achievement off the court as 14 student-athletes were recognized numerous times on the C-USA Academic Honor Roll during Brown's tenure.
A nation-wide search for his replacement has begun.
