Brown has signed a three-year contract, and is planning to draw on his experience in Super League to help drive the Knights towards success.
“After coaching for six years in England, which was about gaining experience to come back and get a job in the NRL, I am really excited about the opportunity to coach such a great club,” he told the Knights’ official website.
“The board members are all successful and enthusiastic about the club doing well, and that gives the rest of the business the best chance of succeeding.
“The people in charge know where the club is at, and know where they want it to be.
“No doubt it is going to be a challenge, and it is one that I am quite experienced at in regards to rebuilding a Club. That makes this the ideal time.”
