Hurlie Brown named new UM running backs coach

Congratulations to new UM running backs coach Hurlie Brown, a nice promotion from UM's senior football operations coordinator.

Brown played for the Hurricanes at safety from 1988-91, winning one title under Jimmy Johnson and another title under Dennis Erickson.

It appears all or at least most of his coaching career has been on the defensive side of the ball, notably with DBs - with some special teams coaching as well.

Finalists who interviewed included Donnell Bennett, who coaches at Oakland Park Northeast High (home of incoming Cane Stacy Coley); and Telly Lockette, wHo has done a fabulous job at Miami Central.

Brown, a native of Merritt Island, Fla., has since 2011 been responsible for community outreach and recruiting official visits, as well as other administrative duties, according to UM.

Brown served as the secondary coach and kickoff team coordinator during his stint at Louisiana- Lafayette from 2007-11.

He was the FIU DBs coach from 2001-06.

He also coached at FLL Dillard High and Merritt Island High.
