During his time as an assistant coach from 2000-10 with the Knights, Craig Brown seemingly always had a smile. Brown, who starred on the collegiate level at Florida in the 1990s before playing professionally for several years, loves the game of basketball, and clearly loved working at UCF.
For those reasons alone, Brown, who was recently hired as the Knights' director of operations, is a welcome addition to the UCF staff. In his new role, Brown will manage the program's day-to-day operations. After finishing his first stint at UCF, he remained close to the game, handling color commentary duties on broadcasts on the Gator Radio Network and ESPN3, and even worked some UCF contests for Bright House Networks last year.
It will be nice to have Brown back in the basketball offices, helping UCF's student-athletes and coaching staff reach their full potential each day.
