Former Eastern Washington defensive back Allen Brown has returned to EWU to coach cornerbacks and coordinate the Eagles’ defensive passing game, the school announced Monday.

Brown, who spent the last four seasons coaching cornerbacks at Cal Poly, began his career at EWU as a strength and conditioning intern in 2014.

He replaces Cherokee Valeria, who was EWU’s cornerbacks coach for eight seasons before recently joining Sacramento State’s staff.

“We are so pumped and excited to get Allen coming full circle to wear the Eagle logo and a whistle,” EWU head coach Aaron Best said. “It is with great pleasure and excitement to introduce Allen’s skill set and coaching ability to our staff as a whole and specifically on the defensive side of the ball.”

Brown played on EWU’s 2010 national championship team and was an All-Big Sky Conference cornerback in 2012.
