Louisville names new recruiting coordinator, safeties coach

University of Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino recently announced the hiring Greg Brown as the team’s new safeties coach and recruiting coordinator. Brown, who spent 15 years in the NFL, comes to Louisville after spending the 2013 season as Alabama’s secondary coach under Nick Saban. The Crimson Tide ranked in the top-15 nationally in scoring defense and passing yards allowed.

“I’m thrilled to be able to hire Greg Brown to complete our staff,” Petrino said. “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 has developed some of the nation’s best on the defensive side of the ball, including NFL All-Pro Rodney Harrison.

During his NFL coaching career, Brown spent time with the Atlanta Falcons,  San Francisco 49ers, San Diego Chargers and the New Orleans Saints.
