"I am very proud and honored to be officially named the head men's lacrosse coach," said Brown. "The opportunity to lead the Pilgrims and continue to build the program is a dream come true. I feel that New England College provides a great opportunity for student-athletes to grow and prepare for success beyond college and I am more than happy to become a part of that."

Brown earned his Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology and Sociology from Western New England University, where he was a three-year starter for the Golden Bear lacrosse team, earning conference defensive player of the year award twice and served as a team captain for two seasons.
