Dee Brown joins Illini staff

Brown is back as part of the Illini men’s basketball program. He has been named Director of Player Development and Alumni Relations. Brown has spent the last year as a special assistant to the Athletic Director. His new duties include scheduling and coordinating all student-athlete’s life skills enhancement opportunities, and community service participation; providing off-court guidance to players during their collegiate careers and beyond.  He also coordinates video materials, and contributes to on-campus recruiting-related activities, as well as directing correspondence with high school coaches, and representing the program at various public and alumni events. In other words, he will be the “face” of the Illini basketball program. Coach John Groce had this to say, “He stands as one of the greatest to ever play here. He is committed to paying it forward as a mentor to our current student-athletes.”     “DEE FOR THREE!”
