Brown takes position as sports consultant

Fred Brown Jr., who last week resigned after one season as boys basketball coach at Eastside Catholic, has accepted a position as sports consultant with Marshall Harris Sports Management in Seattle.

He said his decision to leave the Crusaders was motivated by a desire to better provide for his wife and two children.

"This was a nice opportunity. I believe opportunities do not go away, they go to someone else," he said. "I couldn't pass this up."
