Greg Brown was named the fourth head coach in the history of the Lipscomb's women's basketball program in May 2012.
Brown, 41, was the associate women's basketball coach at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and is a former assistant for Hall of Fame coach Pat Summitt. He has spent the last five seasons at UCF, helping lead the Knights to two Conference USA championships in 2009 and 2011, resulting in two NCAA berths. He joined head coach Joi Williams staff in April 2007 as an assistant coach and was elevated to associate head coach in June 2009.
Following the 2011 season, Brown was selected to speak at the Assistant Basketball Coaches Symposium, A Step Up: Chicago 2011. Brown spoke about scouting and gameplan development at the convention, which is designed as a career and professional development opportunity for women's basketball assistant coaches.
For two seasons, Brown worked with Pat Summitt at the University of Tennessee, first serving as a graduate assistant before being promoted to assistant coach in 2003-04. During that time, the Lady Vols compiled a record of 64-9, earned two Southeastern Conference championships and were twice the runners-up in the NCAA championship game. His responsibilities at Tennessee included coaching post players, including several current WNBA players such as the 2004 Kodak All-America selection Shyra Ely.
A 1993 Lipscomb University graduate with a degree in political science, Brown began his coaching career as a student assistant under former Bisons men’s basketball head coach Don Meyer.
Brown has spoken across the country at numerous Fellowship of Christian Athletes events and clinics. He also has published an article in American Basketball Quarterly on developing low post players at Tennessee and also writes a regular blog on coaching.
Prior to coming to UCF, Brown served as head girls' basketball coach at Goodpasture Christian School in Nashville. He also led Friendship Christian School (Lebanon, Tenn.) girl's basketball team to three district championships, a regional championship and a sub-state title. He earned two District 8A Coach of the Year awards.
Brown and his wife, Teresa, have two sons, Cole and Carter.
