Chris Brown has made unbelievable contributions to the Golden Eagle coaching staff since he was hired away from UMKC seven years ago. He has done so by tutoring33 individuals to 46 conference championships in the long jump and the triple jump over the past nine years. That mark is the most by any coach in the 24-year history of the Mid-Con.

Brown's female athletes have completely dominated the Mid-Con's triple jump competition over the last eight years, winning every indoor title while twice sweeping the competition's top four spots. He also led them to a 1-2-3-4 sweep in the women's long jump event at the 2006 Mid-Con Outdoor Championships.

ORU has also been successful on the men's side of things under Brown, most notably sweeping the top three places in the decathalon competition at two different Mid-Con Championship events.


Brown most recently put thrower Rachel Talbert on the collegiate track scene, as she claimed three top six finishes at the 2006 Junior Outdoor National Championships. Talbert, the 2006 Mid-Con Outdoor Newcomer of the Year, was also the NCAA's only female thrower to qualify for regional competition in the shot put, discus, and javelin events.


Brown's coaching succesful isn't limited to only Golden Eagle athletes either, as Deandre Free, Marcia Daniel, and Sonya Ahmed have all had succesfull careers under his tutorage. Thanks to Brown, Free, the world's top-ranked junior long-jumper in 2000, has taken part the United States Olympic Trials; Daniel has competed in the 200m dash at the1999 World Championships and the 400m dash at the 2000 Olympic Games; and Ahmed has become the Egyptian national record in pole vault.

Brown currently resides in nearby Glenpool, Okla., with his wife, Chooi Lian Ning, and their three year-old son, Zachary.
