Brown is also a former defensive coordinator at Notre Dame, where Duerson played his college ball. Brown was picked in the fourth round of the 1993 draft out of Michigan, where he was co-captain his senior year. Brown played eight seasons in the NFL as a defensive back with the Patriots, Jets and Detroit Lions, from 1993-2000.
Brown was an assistant with the New York Jets and at the University of Virginia before serving as Notre Dame’s defensive coordinator from 2007 to 2009. He was fired along with most of the rest of the staff when Charlie Weis was fired. He coached defensive backs with the New England Patriots last season but was not retained.
“Many are asking, what would cause a young man who has been blessed beyond all measure, with a life so promising that he would put himself and his family in harm’s way?” Brown’s family said. “God kept Corwin Brown here for a reason, and we pray we find that reason.”
