Holy Cross names Milan Brown basketball coach

Worcester, MA (Sports Network) - Holy Cross has named Milan Brown its new head men's basketball coach, the school announced Friday.

Brown replaces Sean Kearney, who was fired after just one season on March 30. Brown signed a five-year contract with an option for a sixth season, and will be introduced at a press conference next week.

"I am extremely excited about the opportunity to come to Holy Cross and to try to lead the program back to the top of the Patriot League," said Brown. "My family and I are really pleased about the move, and I cannot wait to get started."

Brown, 39, comes to Holy Cross from Mount St. Mary's, where he had been head coach for the last seven seasons. The Mountaineers were 95-120 under Brown but steadily improved, recording a winning record in each of the last three seasons.

The highlight of Brown's tenure at Mount St. Mary's came during the 2007-08 season, when the Mountaineers went 19-15 and defeated Coppin State in the opening round game of the NCAA Tournament.

"We spent a lot of time on this search," said Holy Cross athletics director Richard M. Regan, Jr. "We were very focused on hiring someone with head coaching experience, and we were very impressed with Milan both as a coach and a person. We were particularly pleased with the outstanding recommendations we received from a most important source -- several coaches who coached against him over the past few years."

Before serving as the head coach at Mount St. Mary's, Brown had two stints as an assistant coach for the Mountaineers. He was also an assistant at Old Dominion and William & Mary.
