Scott Brown
Defensive Line

BIOGRAPHY

Scott Brown enters his fourth season in the NFL and first as the 49ers defensive line coach, having spent the past three seasons as the team’s Midwest regional scout. Brown has 36 years of coaching experience at the collegiate level, including 35 seasons working with the defensive line.

In 2011, Brown was the defensive line coach at Arizona State, where he worked with first-year starter DT Will Sutton, who registered 2.5 sacks and 5.5 tackles for loss that season. Sutton, a 2014 third-round pick by the Chicago Bears, became the first ASU defensive lineman to be selected in the first three rounds of the NFL draft since Terrell Suggs, in 2003.

Before joining ASU, Brown was the defensive line coach at Colorado State University from 2008-10. While with the Rams, Brown worked with DT Guy Miller, who in 2010 became the first CSU defensive player to earn First-Team All-Mountain West honors since 2003.

From 1996 to 2007, Brown coached the defensive line and special teams at Duke University. During his time with the Blue Devils, Brown directed a steadily improving front line that saw multiple members of the unit earn All-ACC honors. In 1998, DL Chris Combs became the first Duke defensive lineman to receive First-Team All-ACC accolades since 1981 and also made First-Team All-ACC the following year. Brown’s 2002 line helped the defense rank first in the ACC and 28th nationally against the run, allowing just 120.5 rushing yards per game. At Duke, Brown’s primary recruiting areas were the states of Texas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Ohio.

Prior to his tenure at Duke, Brown spent four seasons on the staff at the University of Minnesota, where he coached the defensive line (1992-94) and linebackers (1995). He also served nine years at Texas Christian University (1983-91) and three at Southwest Texas State (1980-82), coaching defensive line all 12 seasons. At Southwest Texas State, he helped the Bobcats to consecutive Division II National Championships, posting victories over North Dakota State in 1981 and UC Davis in 1982. Brown began his coaching career with a four-year stint in various coaching roles at his alma mater, Adams State (1976-79), in Southern Colorado.

A native of Del Norte, CO, Brown was an All-American at Del Norte (CO) High School, and went on to play linebacker and defensive end at Adams State, where he earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physical education. Brown and his wife, Pam, have a son, Ryan, and a daughter, Meghan.
