|Other Position:||Fourth Season at Georgia State|
Scepter Brownlee enters his fourth season as an assistant coach at Georgia State University. He joined head coach Rod Barnes’ Panthers’ staff in 2007-08 after one year as an assistant at Southeast Missouri State University.
“Scepter Brownlee is a young, bright, up-and-coming coach,” said Barnes. “We are excited to have him on the staff because he’s worked with coaches who emphasize the up-tempo and pressing style of defense that we want to use. I am confident that Scepter will be an asset in recruiting and coaching for Georgia State.”
At SEMO, where he worked under head coach Scott Edgar, Brownlee was involved in all aspects of recruiting, on-court coaching and player development while serving as the team’s academic liaison.
Brownlee spent the 2005-06 season as a graduate manager at the University of Tennessee, where he worked under national coach of the year Bruce Pearl and helped the Volunteers enjoy one of their most successful seasons. Ranked as high as No. 8 in the nation during the season, Tennessee posted a 22-8 record and earned a No. 2 national seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Brownlee began his coaching career at Colby Community College in Colby, Kan., serving as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator in 2004-05. Two players that he recruited earned all-conference honors as freshmen, including the league’s freshman of the year, Jamaul Warren.
A native of Fort Wayne, Ind., Brownlee was a two-year letterwinner as a point guard at the University of San Francisco. As a senior in 2003, he garnered four athletic awards with the Arthur Zief Most Inspirational Player Award, the Sixth Man Club Team Captain Award, the Coaching Staff Senior Award, and the Jackie Robinson USF African American Athlete of the Year Award.
He also played one year at Glen Oaks Community College in Centreville, Mich., after transferring from Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne.
Brownlee earned a bachelor of arts degree in sociology from San Francisco in 2003.
He and his wife, Dawna, have a daughter, Kennedi.
