Stewart Brown enters his fourth year in Division I women's soccer as an assistant coach for the Mustangs.
"Stewart has brought the excellent combination of playing and coaching experience along with the ability to build a program at the collegiate level," states Cossaboon. "His dedication and work ethic compliments the direction in which the SMU women's soccer program is taking."
Brown had spent the previous seven years at Limestone College (Gaffney, S.C.) where he has served as the Director of Soccer (since 2000), head men's soccer coach (since 2000) and head women's soccer coach (since 1997). In 2001, Brown swept Coach of the Year Honors (men and women) in the Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference. It was the first time in the history of the CVAC that a coach had garnered both honors in the same year.
Brown holds an NSCAA Premier diploma.
He also served as an adjunct faculty member, teaching such courses as exercise physiology, strength training and conditioning. Brown has also served as a coach with the South Carolina girls' ODP since 2000 and directed the Coastal Carolina Soccer Academy the last two years.
Brown earned a Master's degree from Furman University in Health and Exercise Science in 2000 and his Bachelor's degree in Sports Medicine from Alderson-Broaddus College (Philippi, W.V.) in 1996. A goalkeeper for the Alderson-Broaddus College men's soccer team, Brown was a starter for the nationally-ranked program until suffering a career-ending injury in 1993. He also played for Queens Park Rangers Football Club (London, England) in the old first division.
Brown is a native of Paisley, Scotland, and lives in Dallas.
