Lincoln Riley is adding a defensive coach with more than 4 decades of experience to his Trojans staff.

According to Matt Zenitz of On3, Greg Brown is joining the Trojans as an analyst.

Brown, 65, brings 42 seasons of coaching experience to Los Angeles. He got his start as a graduate assistant at UTEP, his alma mater, in 1981.

Brown coached at a Colorado high school, in the USFL and with the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers before his first on-field college football gig as a defensive backs coach at Wyoming in 1987.

After stops at Purdue (1989-90) and Colorado (1991-93), Brown returned to the NFL as a defensive backs coach with the Atlanta Falcons (1994; 2000-01), San Diego Charger (1995-96), Tennessee Oilers (1997-98) and San Francisco 49ers (1999). He was a defensive assistant for the New Orleans Saints from 2002-04.
