Kippy Brown back with Vols

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (AP) -- Kippy Brown is rejoining the Tennessee coaching staff as the assistant for wide receivers and as the passing game coordinator.
     

Coach Lane Kiffin announced the hiring Thursday. Brown coached for previous Tennessee coaches Johnny Majors and Phillip Fulmer, and Kiffin has known Brown since 1990.

Kiffin calls the move a great day and feels like he hit a grand slam being able to bring
Brown back to the Volunteers' staff.
     

Kiffin calls Brown one of the best receiver coaches in the college or NFL ranks and a great recruiter. Brown will start work Friday with the Vols preparing for the Chick-Fil-A-Bowl.
     

Brown most recently worked as assistant head coach and passing game coordinator with the Detroit Lions in the NFL.
