According to a report from, UMKC and head coach Matt Brown will be parting ways at some point this week.

Brown has spent six seasons as the head coach of the Kangaroos, but this year’s 8-24 record was the fourth time in those six seasons that he ended up with more than 20 losses, finishing over .500 just once in his tenure. That’s not a good way to keep a job.

Brown was an assistant at Richmond and West Virginia before taking over at UMKC.

    I’m hearing that UMKC has reached out to Isaac Chew to gauge his interest. He has strong ties to the area having played college ball at Avila University and coaching AAU in Kansas City.
