James Perry has been named the Brown Bears head coach. He spent the past two seasons as the Bryant Bulldogs head coach.

He is the 20th head coach in the program’s 141-year history. He will be formally introduced at 3:30 pm on Tuesday at the Pizzitola Sports Center.


“I’m extremely pleased to welcome James Perry back to Brown as our head football coach,” Athletic Director Jack Hayes. “James is a proven leader, who has excelled in all aspects of his career – as a player, assistant coach and head coach. He has the determination and experience to lead the Brown football program back to the upper echelon of the Ivy League.”

In his two-years with the Bulldogs, he guided the team to a 12-10 record. He had back-to-back 6-5 seasons.

He graduated from Brown in 2000. During his final collegiate season, he was the Ivy League Player of the Year.

“I’m honored to return to my alma mater as its head coach and follow in the footsteps of Phil Estes, my mentor and friend,” said Perry. “Brown is an exceptional place with a proven record of success in higher education and on the football field. I look forward to building an Ivy League Championship team at Brown once again through our ‘Fast and Physical’ style of playing football, and reconnecting with our legions of football alumni.”

He began his coaching career as the Dartmouth College Assistant Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers Coach in 2001. He then became the Quarterbacks Coach and Recruiting Coordinator at NCAA Division III Williams College.

Perry then served as the Maryland Terrapins graduate assistant in 2006. He then served as the Bears Quarterbacks coach from 2007 through 2009. Then, in 2010, he came the Princeton Tigers Offensive Coordinator. After several seasons at Princeton, he became the Bryant head coach.
