Brown has won 352 games in his career, and next fall will be his 40th on the sidelines. Thirty-five of those years were at Maiden (1966-1978, 1986-2007).
Matt Beam, a graduate of Appalachian State University, has been named the new football coach at Newton-Conover. Beam replaces Brint Russell, who resigned on Nov. 14, 2013.
Beam becomes just the fourth head football coach at N-CHS in the past 40 years, joining Don Patrick, Nick Bazzle and Russell.
The Red Devils were 2-9 this past season after sharing a piece of the final Catawba Valley 2A title in 2012 with a 9-5 record.
Beam is 81-37 during his nine-year stint as a head coach and none of his teams have ever missed the state playoffs. He spent the last six years at Lawndale-Burns.
