He also participated in the 1984 U.S. Olympic team men's basketball trials at Indiana University where he was one of 32 finalists.

Brown, who earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from Columbian College in 1985, is married to the former Esther Rodriguez and has two children, Xavier and Chanel. The Browns currently reside in Las Vegas, NV.
