Greg Brown Named Head Baseball Coach


Greg Brown, NSU's new head basball coach.


NSU athletic director, Michael Mominey, has announced that Gregory Brown will be the third head baseball coach in NSU’s 22-year history.

“I am very excited to name Greg as my successor to take over the baseball program,” Mominey said. “His knowledge and experience in the game of baseball and familiarity of the South Florida area will be extremely beneficial to the continued success of the program.”

A South Florida native, Brown brings a combined 10 years as a professional scouting and collegiate coaching experience to the Sharks baseball program.

“I’m very proud to become the next head coach of Nova Southeastern baseball and I welcome the challenge that is ahead,” Brown said. “I am very thankful to be here due to the relationships I already have with the players and I look forward to building onto what Mike and his staff have already accomplished.”

Brown comes to NSU after two years of working with the Houston Astros as an Area Scout in South Florida and Puerto Rico where he was responsible for evaluating, drafting and signing potential MLB prospects.

Prior to working with the Astros, Brown served as an assistant coach for one season at Broward College where he worked primarily with the hitters and catchers. He was also the Director of Baseball Operations and Partner with Perfect Competition, Inc. from 2005-2007.

After Brown’s collegiate career, he signed as a non-drafted free agent with the Florida Marlins as a catcher and played the majority of his professional career in the Florida State League (High A) with the Jupiter Hammerheads with three stints in Double-A. He also played one season of independent ball for the York Revolution of the Atlantic League in 2007, where he set career-highs in games played and several offensive categories.

Brown played his collegiate ball at  Lynn University from 1999-2003. During his time with the Fighting Knights, Brown helped lead the team to a .563 winning percentage. He still ranks second in career games played, third in career games started and ranks among team leaders in single-game hits and putouts.

While a student-athlete at Lynn, Brown was a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee serving as president of the organization from 2002-2003. In 2003, he was also named Lynn’s Male Student-Athlete of the Year.

Brown earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 2002 and finished his M.B.A. with a concentration in sports administration during his final season as a Fighting Knight in 2003. Brown and his wife Shairin reside in Davie, Fla. with their daughter Kennadi.
