Brown said it was time to go in a different direction.
“We are parting ways,” Brown said. “I have outgrown them. It is just time to move on.”
In his three seasons at Talladega College, Brown recorded a record of 42-52.
In his first season, Brown led the Tornadoes to a second consecutive United States Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship.
However, Brown and the Tornadoes recorded back-to-back losing seasons in the past two years.
This season the Tornadoes went 1-9 in the first half of the season and finished with an 11-19 record. TC’s season came to an end after falling in the first round of the Gulf Coast Atlantic Conference tournament to Philander Smith, 77-73 on March 1.
“I just got threw talking to my players,” Brown said Wedneisday. “I don’t have any regrets. I want to thank Dr. [Billy] Hawkins for giving me the opportunity. I have enjoyed my stay. We won a championship, my players graduated and there is nothing else to be done here. My work is finished.”
Brown coached at St. Jude and Jacksonville University before arriving at TC.
He said he wants his next coaching job to be at a higher level than Division III.
“We are just going in different directions right now,” Brown said. “I want to do something different. I want to coach at another level — a higher level. It is that time.”
Brown said he enjoyed his time at Talladega College.
“Talladega has been good to me,” Brown said. “I have enjoyed it. The President has the school on the move. I am always going to be a ‘Degan’ at heart. It has been a great ride.”
