Whispers of Donald Brown’s return to Marshall University's football team can be confirmed. In yesterdays live chat, Charleston Daily Mail reporter Chuck McGill mentioned that Brown will compete for a starting spot at safety this spring.
Brown was dismissed from MU’s football team in July of 2011 after being arrested for a domestic violence incident involving his wife and then 11-month old daughter. The charges were later dropped and Brown spent last season away from football.
As a sophomore in 2010 the Florida native recorded 75 tackles and three interceptions. Brown played right away as a true freshman and did not use a redshirt, he should have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
