MJHS grad, record-setting college QB
Mt. Juliet High football coach Trey Perry has promoted quarterbacks coach Levi Brown to the position of offensive coordinator. Perry informed his team of the move in a meeting Friday afternoon.
"First thing I did was fire the old offensive coordinator -- me," Perry said. "Levi worked with us last season and of course has a great feel for what we're doing on offense. This should be a very smooth transition."
A 2005 Mt. Juliet graduate and former pro quarterback, Brown went on to become a record-setting passer at Troy University where he was named Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year in 2009 -- passing for 4,254 yards while establishing both Troy and Sun Belt Conference records.
Brown was a seventh round (209th overall) selection of the Buffalo Bills in the 2010 NFL draft. He worked as the Bills' third quarterback and practice squad quarterback in parts of 2010 and 2011.
He also played briefly with two Canadian Football League teams, the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Brown will continue to serve at Mt. Juliet High as a non-faculty coach, with an eye on becoming a fulltime member of the faculty in the future.
