Longtime Washington High School basketball coach Kevin Brown has died.
Brown passed away Tuesday night after battle with brain cancer.
Brown underwent surgery for removal of a brain tumor in August of last year. He later returned to coaching, but took a leave of absence in February.
Current and past players have posted tributes to Brown on social media.
Former Panther and Bradley Braves player Dyricus Simms-Edwards said of Brown on Facebook, “You saw things in me that I didn’t know existed, like you had X-ray vision for my potential.”
Brown led the Washington baseball team an IHSA third place trophy in 2007 and followed that up with a fourth place finish for the basketball team the following year.
