Sources have informed CoachingSearch.com that former Colorado defensive coordinator / secondary coach Greg Brown has been hired by Alabama.
The 55-year-old Brown will coach the defensive backs in replacement of Jeremy Pruitt, who took the defensive coordinator job at Florida State.
Before being the coordinator at Colorado in 2011 and 2012, Brown was the co-defensive coordinator / secondary coach at Arizona in 2010. He was the secondary coach in Boulder from 2006-09. He returned to college football from the NFL, spending time as the secondary coach for the Falcons (1994, 2000-01), Chargers (1995-96), Oilers (1997-98) 49ers (1999) and Saints (2002-05).
