Darrick Brown

Darrick Brown begins his first season as Assistant Director/Director of Football Academics with Rutgers Athletics. In his role, Brown oversees all aspects of academic services for the Scarlet Knight football program, which includes initial eligibility for incoming student-athletes all the way through their graduations. This is Brown’s second stint with Rutgers Athletics, as he previously worked within the academic department at the University from 2006-12. Brown arrived in 2017 after a three-year stint at the University of Southern California, where he was the Assistant Athletic Director/Director of Student Support Services within USC Athletics. Among other responsibilities with the Trojans, Brown oversaw the Athlete Career Transition (ACT) program, which provided USC student-athletes with career panels, networking events, job shadows and internship opportunities. Brown has also oversaw academics for football programs at the University of Miami (2013-14) and the University of Central Florida (2012-13) after his initial appointment with the Scarlet Knights. Brown received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Maine in 2000, where he was a two-time all-conference selection as a return specialist for the Black Bear’s football team. Brown still co-owns the school record for most kick returns in a season with 28.
