2010 CHS grad named head coach at Maysville

| July 20, 2017

COSHOCTON – Dave Brown, a 2010 Coshocton High School graduate, dreamed of being a head basketball coach and this winter his dream will come true.

Brown spent two years as an assistant boys’ basketball coach for the Maysville High School Panthers and will now take over the program.

“This is a dream come true for me and a good situation because we have a lot of talent coming in the next two years,” he said.

Brown will take over for Greg Mitts, who resigned from the position in April.

Prior to coming to Maysville, Brown spent one year as a volunteer assistant at John Glenn High School under Greg Woodard.

“This job makes me feel like all my hard work was worth it,” he said.

Brown also played two years of college basketball at Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina, two years at Muskingum University and played three years of varsity ball at CHS.

“Ever since I was a kid I loved shooting, working on my game and the competitiveness of basketball,” Brown said. “I just got hooked on it. I never saw basketball not being a part of my life. When I finished playing I knew I wanted to coach and teach.”

His plans are for Maysville to play a fast paced game and get as many possessions as possible.

“This is my third year with them and I have six seniors that have played since I first got here when they were sophomores,” Brown said. “They know what I expect so it’s a pretty smooth transition.”

In addition to coaching, Brown works as an intervention specialist for Maysville.

“I have a ton of people to thank for helping me get to where I am,” he said. “I definitely want to thank my family, Coach Hilgenberg who coached me in high school, Gene Ford, my coach at Muskingum, Greg Woodard from John Glenn, and Greg Mitts from Maysville. Every one of them kind of molded me into the leader that I am now.”
