David Brown, who guided Missouri S&T’s football team to its best season in more than three decades in 2012, is stepping down from the head coaching post as he has accepted a position on the staff at Fresno State University.
Brown will join the Bulldogs’ staff as a defensive secondary coach after spending the last three seasons as the Miners’ head coach. He led S&T to a mark of 19-14 in those three years which included a 10-1 record and a No. 24 national ranking in the final American Football Coaches Association poll in the 2012 season.
“My family enjoyed our time in Rolla and coaching at Missouri S&T,” Brown said. “We appreciated the friendly supportive people around town and campus. I can’t say enough about the players that I was able to coach. They are great young men and will definitely be successful in life. They were a great group to work with every morning. We were able to accomplish a lot in a short period of time.”
