December 19, 2012Steve Addazio pulled a surprise coup today by hiring UConn defensive coordinator Don Brown as BC's new defensive coordinator. Brown spent the last two years in the Big East as a DC before spending the previous two years before that at Maryland as the DC.
Brown is a native of Spencer, MA and has strong ties to the New England region where he coached from 1982-2008. During that span Brown was the head coach at UMass for 5 years, and was head coach at Northeastern for 4 years
With Brown as BC's DC there is bound to be sweeping changes across the BC defense. Brown is known for using an aggressive defensive scheme that utilizes many different blitz packages. The Eagles will blitz more than they have in quite some time.
In terms of recruiting, Brown could pay dividends as well. At UConn, Brown was responsible for many of the recruits that came from the state of Florida.
