Steven Brown, 28, made the move from the playing field to the
coaching staff in 2007, spending one season as a graduate assistant
on Watson Brown’s staff. In 2008 he moved into an assistant
coaching role and in 2012 he took on the duties of Offensive
Coordinator. He coaches the team's runningbacks. Until this season,
he has also coached Tech's quarterbacks, working with a pair of
record-setters in Lee Sweeney and Tre Lamb, both now assistant
coaches on the Tech staff.
In 2009, he helped Sweeney accomplish his most successful season, and also helped mold several young signal-callers including freshman Tre Lamb and junior Cass Barnes. The past three years that work paid dividends as Lamb became one of the most prolific signal-callers in Tech history, setting numerous school passing, scoring and total offense records.
An experienced player who enjoyed two successful seasons at UAB and one at Tech, Steven had one season of eligibility remaining in 2008 but passed on the chance to play his final year for the opportunity to begin his coaching career.
The son of head coach Watson Brown, Steven played two seasons at UAB then transfered to Tech in 2007 where he played both wide receiver and quarterback for the Golden Eagles.
A highly recruited prep quarterback out of high school, he originally enrolled at Auburn in 2004, then moved to UAB and made the transition to receiver in 2005. In 2006 he played in 11 of 12 games for the Blazers, ranking fifth on the team with 14 catches for 200 yards and two touchdowns.
In his one season for the Golden Eagles, he had 12 catches for 164 yards as an inside receiver. In the middle of the season, with injuries to the top three quarterbacks, Steven stepped under center and played quarterback. He finished the year going 22-for-34 for 252 yards and one touchdown, posting a 119.02 quarterback rating.
In high school, he was named honorable mention on the Class 6A All-State team in 2003 as a senior quarterback, helping lead Vestavia Hills to a 12-2 record and an appearance in the state semifinals.
