After leaving his mark as one of the most ferocious linebackers in University of Hawai’i history, Chris Brown has spent the last decade coaching defenses on the prep level in the ILH.
Coaching stops at both Saint Louis and his alma mater of Damien have prepared him for his next step up the coaching ladder, as the Kahalu’u native has been hired as linebackers coach at reigning high school national champion Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas.
The Gaels are riding a 24 game winning streak, having won the Nevada state championship six straight times.
Brown was a first team All-WAC selection from his four-year career with the Warriors, totaling 263 tackles as a defensive end and linebacker for Hawai’i from 1999-2002
He won’t be the only local boy in the Gael’s football program this season. Former Saint Louis student Haskell Garrett is ranked as the 34th overall prospect in America for the class of 2017 by scout.com. The defensive tackle already holds scholarship offers from USC, Washington, UCLA, Washington State, and Utah among others.
Bishop Gorman opens their 2015 season on national television, hosting Chandler (AZ) August 29th on ESPN.
