Denver University Men’s Lacrosse Associate Head Coach
Former DU men’s lacrosse stand out Matt Brown joined the Pioneers’ coaching staff in 2007 as the volunteer assistant coach and has since moved from assistant coach to his current position as associate head coach, effective July 2011.
After three seasons under the former coaching staff, Brown was asked to join the legendary head coach Bill Tierney’s coaching staff, upon his arrival to DU in June 2010. During his 11 seasons at DU, Brown has helped the Pioneers to a 159-66 overall record, and transitions from the Great Western Lacrosse League to the Eastern College Athletic Conference to the BIG EAST.
The Pioneers have reached Championship Weekend five times in the last nine tournaments, including the 2015 National Champion Pioneers, the first program to sit atop the national plateau from a state not sharing a boarder with the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
In his 11 seasons under coach Tierney, Brown has served as the offensive coordinator. Under his guidance, the Pioneers’ offense has consistently been ranked within the top -10 in scoring offense, even ranking as high as No. 3. Brown has also helped the Pioneers to make it to the NCAA Tournament 10 times as well as help DU claim its first-ever NCAA Tournament win and trip to the Semifinals in 2011.
Brown’s coaching experience extends beyond the collegiate sphere, as he serves as an assistant coach for the Canadian National Lacrosse team. Brown served as the offensive coordinator for the 2012 Under-19 Canadian Men’s Field Team and was an assistant coach for Canada when it defeated the USA 11-9 at the Duel in Denver in September of 2012. In Oct. of 2012, Brown was named the offensive coordinator once again for the 2014 team that won the FIL World Lacrosse Championship in Commerce City, Colo. Brown was named the head coach of the Canada U-19 Team in June, 2019, ahead of the 2020 U-19 World Championships.
