Biography

ShaDon Brown enters his first season with the Black Knights as the cornerbacks coach.

Brown comes to West Point after five seasons as an assistant at Wofford College. For the first four seasons he was the cornerbacks coach before moving to safeties in 2015. Brown spent the summer of 2015 working in the National Football League as a defensive backs intern with the Super Bowl 50 runner-up Carolina Panthers.

Each season at Wofford, Brown had a cornerback finish in the top five in the Southern Conference in interceptions and he coached three All-Conference cornerbacks from 2011-15. The Terriers were 15th nationally in pass defense among FCS teams in 2011 and 17th in 2012. Wofford led the Southern Conference in total defense twice (2011,2012) during his five years in Spartanburg, S.C.

In 2015 under Brown, Brion Anderson had three interceptions to lead the Terriers and tied for third in the Southern Conference. During the 2013 season, second-year freshman cornerback Chris Armfield led the team in interceptions with three, which tied for the most in the Southern Conference.

In 2012, Brown mentored College Sports Madness Third Team All-American cornerback Blake Wylie. He earned Second Team All-Southern Conference honors as he led the team and was fourth in the league with three interceptions.

Wofford was a two-time Football Championship Subdivision Playoff Quarterfinalist with Brown as an assistant in 2011 and 2012.

He also spent two seasons as the special teams coordinator from 2013 to 2014.  During that span Brown mentored Kasey Redfern punter for the San Diego Chargers.  Brown was promoted to recruiting coordinator in the spring of 2015.

Prior to Wofford, Brown spent three seasons as head coach at Rowan County High School in Kentucky. In 2010, the team posted a 10-2 record and won the Class 4A District 8 Championship for the first time since 1982 and reached the quarterfinals of the state playoffs. He was named the Kentucky Class 4A District 8 Coach of the Year in 2010 as well.

He led the Vikings to a 4-7 record in his first season and improved to 7-4 in 2009. Overall, Rowan County transformed from 18 wins in nine years to 21 in three years under Brown. He mentored 10 former players that went on to play college football.

In 2001, Brown started at linebacker for the winningest football team in Campbellsville University history. The team won 10 games and finished the season ranked #10 in the NAIA.  After graduation, Brown became a graduate assistant outside linebackers coach at the University of the Cumberlands in 2003.

He was promoted to a full-time assistant for the 2004 and 2005 seasons, coaching the inside linebackers. While coaching for three years at the University of the Cumberlands, Brown was part of 24 wins and nationally ranked teams, defense, and rush offense in two of the three seasons.  In 2005, the Patriot football team climbed to as high as #5 in the nation. In 2006, he returned to his alma mater Campbellsville University as the inside linebackers coach. In 2007 Brown coached at Boyle County High School in Danville, Kentucky.
