Prairie View A&M University has officially named Dawn Brown as its head women’s basketball coach. Brown, who served on an interim basis this past season, becomes Prairie View A&M’s fifth head coach since the program moved to the NCAA Division I ranks in 1982.
“Coach Brown has done a tremendous job in continuing the overall success of the program on-and-off the court,” said Director of Athletics Ashley Robinson.
“She stepped into the position last summer and immediately proved herself as a solid motivator, teacher and recruiter. Coach Brown has the desire to move the Prairie View A&M women’s basketball to another level in terms of its national profile after having an instrumental part in the program’s success over the past four seasons.”
Named the team’s interim head coach in 2013, Brown led the Lady Panthers to their fourth consecutive NCAA Women’s Basketball Division I Tournament appearance and the team’s fourth straight SWAC Tournament Championship this past season.
Before coaching at Prairie View A&M, Brown spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Tougaloo College. At Tougaloo, Brown played a major part in turning the program around as the Lady Bulldogs finished the 2009-10 season with their best record in 12 years and advanced to the semifinal round of the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Tournament.
