Coaching Experience

Fletcher Brown will enter his fourth season as the Head Coach for the Lady Bengals in the 2020-2021 season. During his second season at the helm, he lead the team to a 23 win season and a National Runner-Up finish at the USCAA National Championship Tournament. The Bengals excelled in the 2018-2019 season leading the USCAA in assists per game, with 17.1 and had the top ranked defense, only allowing 51 points per contest. Coach Brown was succesful in recruiting the USCAA National Player of the Year, Trinity Washington and a First-Team All-USCAA Selection in Tajaheray McMahan. Coach Brown has also helped develop a 1,000 point scorer in Savana Jankowski and a Second Team All-American in Ranika Guyton. Coach Brown helped lead the Bengals to the USCAA National Tournament for three consecutive years. Coach Brown hopes his players can hold themselves to a high standard and excel both on the court and in the classroom. 

Brown began his coaching career as Assistant Men's Basketball coach for UMFK after competing for the Bengals the previous two seasons. Brown proved a useful addition to Coach Bird as he lead off-season workouts and assisted in recruiting, helping in bring in one National Player of the Year as well as one USCAA Student Athlete of the Year. Following his stint as Assistant Men's Basketball coach, he was named Head Women's Basketball Coach for the 2017-2018 season.

Brown came to Fort Kent after attending and playing for Contra Costa Community College in San Pablo, California for his freshman and sophomore seasons. As a freshman, Brown was a member of the Contra Costa team that reached the California Community College Athletic Association State Playoffs.

Prior to Contra Costa, the 2012 Balboa High School graduate was team captain and voted team MVP as well as awarded an All-City selection in his home town of San Francisco, California.

While playing for the Bengals, Brown competed in 54 games, starting 45 of them and winning 32. Head coach Tom Bird named him the Most Valuable Teammate of the 2014-2015 season.

Brown recently obtained a Masters in Leadership and Organizational Studies from the University of Southern Maine. Brown brings an enthusiasm for the game as well as a perspective well beyond his years. Both as a player and an assistant coach, Brown has been -- and continues to be -- a welcomed member of the UMFK family.
