Former Panther RB Dee Brown to coach at Victory Christian

Former Carolina Panthers running back Dadrian "Dee" Brown is the new head football coach at Victory Christian.

Brown played at Syracuse and played two years for Carolina in 2001 and 2002. He played in 14 games in the 2002 season, rushing 102 times for 360 yards and four touchdowns. He played with Pittsburgh in 2003, Cleveland in 2004 and finished his career with Kansas City in 2005 and '06.

In 2010, Brown worked as a running backs coach at the NFL Summer Minority Internship Program with the Denver Broncos.

"Dee has a strong desire to help make a difference in the lives of young people," said Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville. "He has a passion for the game and what is has done for him."

Victory Christian athletics director Michael Pratt said Brown, who replaces six-year coach Frank Crockett, is the right guy to turn around the Kings program, which has struggled of late.

"Coach Brown brings solid experience and a strong knowledge of the game," he said.
