The Nebraska Danger has announced they're promoting interim co-head coach Pig Brown to take over the job permanently in the 2019 season.

“Pig has been a part of the Danger tradition for a long time, first as a player and then as a coach, and played an instrumental part in winning our three Intense Conference Championships. We felt that he was a great fit to be our next Head Coach,” Danger Owner Charlie Bosselman said.

According to Grand Island's Indoor Football League team, Brown served as an assistant coach the past two seasons. He served as Defensive Coordinator in 2017, and Defensive Coordinator and Defensive Line Coach in 2018.

The former Danger linebacker will be inducted into the IFL Hall of Fame this weekend alongside teammate Jameel Sewell.

“It is truly an honor to coach for one of the IFL’s most respected programs, and I appreciate the passion of this ownership group and staff. Central Nebraska has some of the greatest fans in the nation, and I am thrilled for the opportunity to take over and grow the Danger program,” said Brown.

Brown replaces Mark Stoute, who was dismissed late in the 2018 regular season. Assistant coaches will be announced at a later date.
