BUFFALO, N.Y.—Buffalo State has named former player and alum Jamie Brown, who most recently served as the head coach at the Sage Colleges, its head softball coach effective Oct. 1.
Brown brings 18 years of coaching experience at multiple levels to her new position. She spent the past six seasons coaching at Sage, where she also served as the Senior Woman Administrator. Brown led the Gators to a 141-101 overall record, including a regular-season Skyline Conference Championship in 2014 and she was also the Skyline Conference Co-Coach of the Year in 2012.
Prior to her time at Sage, Brown coached at all levels from junior college to NCAA Division I. She was the head coach for three seasons at Division II California State University, Chico, was head coach for four years at East Stroudsburg, and also was head coach for one season with Division III Skidmore. She also had stints as an assistant coach with Butte College, Southern Utah University, Wagner College and at Westminster College. Brown has also worked several years at the UCLA Softball Summer Camp.
Brown is extremely familiar with Buffalo State as a four-year starting outfielder with the Bengals' softball team from 1996-99 where she helped the Bengals win a SUNYAC Championship and make a pair of appearances in the NCAA playoffs.
"It's an honor and a privilege to get the opportunity to coach at my alma mater, Buffalo State," Brown said.
She completed her bachelor's degree in journalism from Buffalo State and earned her master's in general education from the University at Albany.
