Fayetteville, NC – Fayetteville State University head men’s and women’s cross country coach Tyreece Brown accepted an invitation to participate in the United States Marines Corps Leadership Coaches Workshop at the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, VA. In addition to leading the Broncos cross country program, Brown serves as the assistant women’s basketball coach and athletics facility manager. The United States Marine Corps sponsors the coaches’ workshop where only a few coaches around the country are able to participate in the program, with all expenses paid throughout the training. The workshop teaches leadership and developmental skills for coaches in hopes to become better leaders. The training consisted of morning workouts, leadership seminars, a leadership reaction course and discipline of character through martial arts demonstration.

The Coaches Workshop was held May 18-21, 2016. The three-day, intensive leadership workshop is designated to teach coaches Marine Corps small unit leadership (tactics, techniques and procedures). To date, more than 75 coaches have participated in the Coaches Workshop program across different sports including: basketball, baseball, football, soccer and golf. The event allows coaches to get a small taste of what it takes to become a Marine Corps Officer and to develop a culture of leadership within their teams.

“It was a great overall learning experience,” stated Brown. “The Marines train for leadership within leadership. Having a group of leaders is essential because if something happens to the top person, someone else is prepared step up and still carry out the mission. I definitely have a newfound respect for the Marine Corps. This workshop provided prospective to not only change my outlook on coaching, but on life in general.” Brown recently completed his fifth season at FSU on the women’s basketball coaching staff and prepares to enter his second season as head men’s and women’s cross country coach.
