Cowboys announce addition of Gary Brown as RBs coach, completing staff hiring

The Cowboys announced the hiring of Gary Brown as running backs coach, completing their coaching staff for 2013.

Brown comes to the Cowboys from Cleveland, where he spent the last four seasons and got credit last year for the rapid development of first-round pick Trent Richardson, who ran for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns, both team rookie records, and also caught 51 passes.

Three years ago, Peyton Hillis had 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Browns.

In college, Brown was running backs coach as Rutgers went 8-5 in 2008. Before that, he spent two years as offensive coordinator at Susquehanna University.

He played eight years in the NFL, rushing for 4,300 yards for the Oilers, Chargers and Giants. He had two 1,000-yard seasons, in 1993 (in just eight games) and 1998.

He played four years at Penn State, leading the team in rushing as a sophomore.

He is a native of Williamsport, Pa., and earned a degree in sports administration from Lock Haven University after his playing career.
