Johnathan Brown, a former team captain at Dominican College, joined the Bucknell men's basketball staff as manager of basketball operations in August 2016. At Bucknell, Brown is tasked with coordinating all types of team logistics, including key elements such as team travel, recruiting, camps and video editing and exchange.
In his first season at Bucknell, Brown was part of a team that captured Patriot League regular-season and tournament titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the seventh time in team history.
Brown is a 2014 graduate of Dominican College in Orangeburg, New York. He was named the school's top male athlete as a junior and senior while making the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference All-Academic Team and the school's Academic Dean's List all four years. He served as vice president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and was inducted into two honor societies.
In 2014-15, Brown served as assistant coach and academic coordinator at Virginia University of Lynchburg, and then last year he returned to his home area to become an assistant coach at Central Islip High School while also working as a customer support specialist with Synergy Sports Technology.
"J.B. has shown that no task is too small," said Davis. "He is engaging and possesses a tremendous work ethic. He will do a tremendous job representing Bucknell University and Bison Basketball."
Brown is the younger brother of former Bison basketball standout Donald Brown '07, who played on Bucknell's 2005 and 2006 Patriot League championship and NCAA Tournament teams.
