Missouri athletics is creating a social responsibility and personal development curriculum around the “Mizzou Made” concept.
Drake associate athletic director and assistant track and field coach Brian Brown, who has served as director of the famed Drake Relays for the last 11 years, will head up the program.
Drake University announced Thursday in a press release that Brown and his wife, Bulldogs track coach Natasha Kaiser-Brown, were both leaving for new positions at MU.
Brown, who received master’s and a doctorate degrees from the University of Missouri, will serve as an assistant athletic director, taking the reins for the new initiative, while Kaiser-Brown has been hired as the Tigers’ associate track and field coach.
Kaiser-Brown, who received her bachelor’s degree from Mizzou, was a six-time NCAA All-American with the Tigers, including a title in the 400 meters during the 1989 indoor national championships.
She also won a silver medal at the 1992 Olympics, running on Team USA’s 1,600-meter relay team in Barcelona, and was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in January.
