A familiar face has returned to the UTSA football program, as head coach Jeff Traylor announced Tuesday that he has hired Kevin Brown as Director of Football Operations.
Brown, who was an assistant coach under Larry Coker from 2011 to 2015, spent the past two years as an offensive coordinator on the prep level. He will be responsible for assisting the coaching staff with day-to-day operations of the program, coordinating practice schedules and team travel, assisting with summer camps, collaborating with campus organizations and organizing community service projects, among other duties.
Brown returns to the Roadrunners after a stint as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Boerne High School during the 2019 season. He helped the Greyhounds to a 7-4 record and a Class 4A Division I playoff appearance in his only season. Under his tutelage, the offense passed for 2,447 yards and 25 touchdowns and rushed for 919 yards and 10 TDs.
Prior to his time in Boerne, Brown was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at TMI Episcopal in San Antonio in 2018.
Brown spent the 2017 season as the wide receivers coach at Lamar, an FCS member of the Southland Conference. His position group combined to catch 160 passes for 1,876 yards and seven touchdowns. He also was responsible for the Cardinals’ kickoff return unit, which tallied 832 yards on 40 returns.
An integral part of the UTSA coaching staff during its startup era, Brown coached the Roadrunners’ tight ends during the inaugural 2011 campaign before being promoted in 2012 to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, and he remained in that role through the 2015 season.
During his first tenure at UTSA, he helped mentor nine all-conference performers, including tight end David Morgan II, who became the program’s first All-American in 2015 when he garnered second-team accolades from USA TODAY and honorable mention from SI.com. A second-team all-conference choice that year, Morgan also was the program’s first NFL Draft pick when the Vikings selected him in the sixth round the following spring.
Prior to his first tenure at UTSA, Brown served as the receivers coach at Texas State for four seasons, where he helped the Bobcats break numerous school records and mentored third-team All-America wide receiver Cameron Luke.
Prior to his time at Texas State, Brown was an offensive graduate assistant coach at TCU, his alma mater, for three seasons.
During his playing career as a wide receiver at TCU from 1998-2002, Brown caught 39 passes for 567 yards, an average of 14.5 yards per reception, and four touchdowns during his career. He was a member of five bowl teams as a player and three more as a staff member with the Horned Frogs.
