Who’s This Guy?: Brett Brown

Welcome back to “Who’s This Guy?” a look at the 2013-14 Sixers Roster. Yesterday we met Jason Richardson. Today, we look at Head Coach Brett Brown.


Name: Brett Brown

Position: Head Coach

Age: 52

College: Boston University

Prior Coaching Experience: Melbourne Tigers (assistant) 1988-93; North Melbourne Giants (HC) 1993-98; Sydney Kings (HC) 2000-02; Australian National Team (assistant) 1996, 1998, 2000, 2009-2012; San Antonio Spurs (assistant) 2007-2012

Pros: Brown has some great experience from coaching under Gregg Popovich over the past six seasons. He has been given credit for the development of Tony Parker. He works well with young players and does have a winning pedigree. He seems like he is in it for the long haul, and it will be a long haul.

Cons: This is his first head coaching job in the NBA. This team is young and he will need patience in order to succeed and grow with the team. The one question seems to be, do the Sixers consider him a stop-gap or do they want him to be the coach of the future? We’ll see as this season drags on.

Tomorrow: Khalaf Wyatt
