Jeff Capel Brings Former Pitt Standout Gilbert Brown Back to the Program



A key member of Pitt’s recent glory days is returning to the basketball program.

Jeff Capel announced that former Panther captain Gilbert Brown has been hired as the teams Director of Player and Alumni Development. Brown replaces former Panther guard Ronald Ramon, who took an assistant coaches job with Fordham.

During Brown’s career with Pitt from 2006-2011, the Panthers went 111-30 and won two Big East Championships. The native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania finished his Pitt career scoring 1,048 points and collecting 438 rebounds, 234 assists in 129 games (49 starts).

“Gil is an outstanding Pitt man with a great deal of passion for the game of basketball and the University of Pittsburgh,” said Capel. “We connected immediately over basketball when I first started here at Pitt and he was rehabbing an injury and extending his player career. I look forward to watching Gil continue to build great relationships with past, present, and future Pitt basketball players and their families.”

Last season, Brown was an associate head coach at South Kent Prep in Connecticut. Prior to that, Brown enjoyed a 10 year professional career as he played in the Dominican Republic, Germany, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Turkey, Italy, Israel and the NBA D-League.
