Earlier today, Ole Miss added a former player to their coaching staff. Bryan Brown, who was the defensive coordinator at Cincinnati this past season, becomes the co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach.

Lane Kiffin acquired a familiar face to his coaching staff earlier today. Bryan Brown, who has made more than one diversion to Oxford through his playing and coaching career, is back with the Rebels again.

Brown, who served as the Cincinnati Bearcats DC this past season, joins Kiffin as the co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach.

Bryan Brown played for the Rebels as a defensive back from 2003-2006, with an interception that he returned for a touchdown against Tennessee as a stand-out moment.

After finding himself at a few different teams to start his coaching career, Brown landed back at Ole Miss for the 2010 and 2011 seasons. In 2012, he served first as a defensive administrative assistant, then as a graduate assistant the following season.

One of his biggest accomplishments in his coaching career was helping guide Appalachian State to a Sun-Belt title as the defensive coordinator.

Brown has shown during his time with Appalachian State and Louisville that he is a talented coach. During his time with the Mountaineers, Brown's defence had 70 interceptions in four seasons.

Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin had high praise for Bryan Brown.

""We are excited to add a high-quality coach like Bryan Brown to our staff. He has deep Ole Miss roots as a player, and as a coach, he has proven himself multiple times to be one of the top defensive coaches and recruiters in the nation. He has a proven pedigree, and I think it continues to show our commitment to making Ole Miss football a national program that competes at the highest level on both sides of the ball.""
