Alabama State University Friday fired assistant head football coach and football operations coordinator, Lee Brown, after the NCAA ruled that Brown committed infractions when he was the head coach at Cheyney University, a division II school in Pennsylvania.
While at Cheyney, Brown allowed ineligble players to compete in games.
"We are saddened and shocked by the infractions committed by Coach Brown" said ASU head football coach Reggie Barlow. "However, we consider accountability as the greatest ability on the ASU football team and staff and must exercise appropriate discipline at every level."
Brown came to ASU from Edward Waters College where he served as defensive coordinator and secondary coach. He completed only one season at ASU as the running backs coach in 2006.
