From 2018 to 2021, Brown served as the head coach of the Munakata Sanix in Japan’s Top League, where he coached current NOLA Gold player Jarred Adams.
Brown played an instrumental role in leading the Georgia National Team to their historic victories over Italy and Wales. These victories mark the first time Georgia has beaten the two tier one nations.
Brown most recently contributed his expertise to the Georgia National Team during the Rugby World Cup, a significant milestone in his coaching journey. Now, he eagerly prepares to bring his wealth of experience and strategic insight to the Big Easy.
Brown expressed his enthusiasm for the new role, stating, “I am thrilled and excited to join NOLA Gold Rugby as Head coach.
