Report: Kippy Brown to coach Seahawks receivers

Add Kippy Brown to the list of coaches reported to be heading to Seattle. Brown served as Tennessee’s wide receivers coach and passing-game coordinator in 2009 under Lane Kiffin. He served as the Volunteers interim head coach for less than a week, bridging those days between Kiffin’s return to USC and the Volunteers hiring Derek Dooley from Louisiana Tech.
While Brown is coming from college, but he has 17 years of coaching experience in the NFL.

Brown most recently coached with the Detroit Lions from 2006 to 2008. He also served as head coach in the XFL, running the Memphis Maniax in 2001.

Brown joins an offensive coaching staff that will include Jeremy Bates as coordinator, Alex Gibbs in charge of the offensive line. Jedd Fisch is also expected to be part of the staff though there has been no official word on his addition.
