MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - William Brown has been hired by the University of Connecticut as the head video coordinator for football. Brown spent the previous three years as coordinator of video operations for the Blue Raider football program.

Brown was the first full-time video coordinator at MTSU when he was hired in June 2006.

"Middle Tennessee has been a great and rewarding experience for me," said Brown. "I owe a lot to Coach Stockstill and the administration for giving me the opportunity to run the video department and I will miss all of the great people at the University and community."

The Georgetown, S.C., native made his way to Murfreesboro after spending two years at South Carolina as an assistant video coordinator. Brown worked under former Blue Raider football player Joe Lisle and oversaw video operations for the women's basketball program while assisting with football.

Brown, who also was in charge of weekly motivational highlight tapes for the football program, assisted in scoreboard productions for football, basketball, and special events. His other duties with the football program at South Carolina consisted of setting up meeting rooms at the hotel during home and away games, making highlight tapes for NFL draft prospects, and handling all video for the head coaches' meetings.

Before his arrival at South Carolina, Brown served three years as head student video coordinator at Benedict College, where he worked with football and men's and women's basketball. In 2004, Benedict won both the men's and women's conference titles to advance to the Division II NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history.

Brown, who worked the 2005 Independence Bowl and the 2006 Motor City Bowl, earned his degree in recreation from Benedict College in 2004.
