Utah State is losing this assistant football coach to a Power Five program

There will reportedly be a hole to fill on the Utah State football coaching staff.
ESPN’s Pete Thamel reported Thursday that Washington State is expected to hire Utah State cornerbacks coach Ray Brown for the same position with the Cougars program under first-year head coach Jake Dickert.

Brown joined Blake Anderson’s staff last year. His cornerback group — led by players like Michael Anyanwu, Cam Lampkin and Andre Grayson — helped the Aggies hold opponents to 230.9 passing yards per game in 2021.
Brown is familiar with the Washington State program, having served as a defensive graduate assistant at the school in 2013.
He also spent two years as a graduate assistant at another Pac-12 school, Arizona State, from 2014-15.
Prior to landing in Logan, Brown was also the defensive backs coach at Abilene Christian from 2016-18 and coached cornerbacks at Troy from 2019-20.
Lampkin shared his appreciation for Brown on social media.
