Last week, the Associated Press reported that Georgetown promoted assistant coach Keith Brown to the head coaching position for women’s basketball. On Monday, Georgetown confirmed the hire in a press release and on Wednesday morning, Athletic Director Lee Reed officially introduced Brown in a press conference.
Donning a Georgetown hat given to him by Reed, Brown spoke about the program at length and thanked his many supporters during his tenure at Georgetown. In a statement issued on Monday, Reed had kind words to offer on Brown’s hiring:
“I am excited to be promoting Keith to head women’s basketball coach. He has been an integral part of our success over the past few seasons and I am confident he can sustain the program’s momentum. Keith is a proven recruiter and motivator, he has the ability to push these student-athletes both on the court and in the classroom and I look forward to what he will bring to the program.”
Brown, a passionate presence on the Hoya bench for the past five seasons, served as former Head Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy’s top assistant in addition to his role as head of recruiting. He fills a void left by Williams-Flournoy after her departure for the vacant head coaching position at Auburn University.
