2019 saw the Pilgrims return to the conference championship for the fourth-consecutive season, where they earned the NCAA automatic selection. New England College saw familiar foe, Norwich University in the opening round of the national tournament, and NEC dispatched the Cadets 12-10. Senior Connor Fries was named the New England Collegiate Conference Player of the Year, after setting the NCAA record for the most caused turnovers in a career (223), and his 471 career ground balls set the program record. William Platt was selected as the conference Goaltender of the Year, after leading the Pilgrims to 1 10-9 record and their fourth-straight NCAA appearence.

The 2018 season was full of milestones for the team. The Pilgrims captured their third-straight North Atlantic Conference (NAC) championship and clinched the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, where they claimed the first NCAA win in NEC men's lacrosse program history with a 9-8 overtime victory over Albion in the first round. The NCAA appearance was the fourth for NEC in Brown's five seasons.

The 2017 season, Brown's fourth at NEC, saw the Pilgrims finish with an undefeated conference schedule. Following the tournament victory, the Pilgrims advanced to their third NCAA tournament appearance in four years. He was named the NAC Coach of the Year for his efforts.

The Pilgrims were also crowned NAC champions in 2017, 2016, and 2014.

In five seasons at the helm of the program, Brown has coached 39 NAC All-Conference selections including three NAC Players of the Year, three NAC Defensive Players of the Year, and three NAC Rookies of the Year. In 2018, Brown coached Matt Richard to his 400th career point and the NCAA Division III record for assists in a season (93).

While at UNE he helped lead the Nor’easters to two consecutive ECAC New England Championship appearances. Brown’s main responsibilities while at UNE included serving as a defensive coordinator, as well as coaching the face-off development and man-down defense.
