"Chris is undeniably one of the best coaches out there. It’s clearly evident with his on-field successes. On the field, Chris demands success in the best way. He taught me how to push past mental limitations, how to set and achieve high standards, and how focusing on the details and process will lead to the desired outcome.

But the on-field success is not the reason Chris is a high-quality coach. Chris fostered a positive learning environment where learning from mistakes was encouraged and how what we do and how we behave off the field is equally as important as what we do on it.

When Chris came on as our coach, there was a clear shift in culture. As a team, we began to take ownership of our actions and truly believe and take pride in our team values that Chris would daily live out. It is accurate to say that I am a far better rugby player, athlete, and most importantly person because of the direct influence Chris Brown has had on my life.

Working with Brownie were the most valuable years of my career. He builds his coaching relationship with the foundation of hard work, compassion, and honesty. As someone who takes incredible pride in his ability to coach and help people, he cares immensely about his players and their performance.


If he knows you’ve lived up to your side of the hard work agreement, then he will meet you with compassion. If you aren’t living up to your capabilities he will be honest about it and will push and help you to get to where you’re capable of, and if you’re performing at your best he will reassure you.


Chris understood me and we built a relationship around a mutual understanding that we both wanted the best out of each other and would help each other get there. I’ve never met someone so passionate about being the best coach they can be, and that drive is what connects like-minded people.
