Tony Brown Otago coach

Assistant coach: Tony Brown

The Highlanders have announced that former fly-half, and Otago ITM Cup coach, Tony Brown, has signed for the Highlanders as an assistant coach.

Brown, who played 90 games for the Dunedin based side in a career that spanned from 1996 to 2011, is a coup that pleases boss Jamie Joseph.

"I've been impressed with Brownie's performances with Otago over the last couple of years; the team has played with a lot of character and he has shown a great ability to get the best out of his players. I'm looking forward to having his input in the coaching mix for 2014," he told the Highlanders website.

Brown will continue in his role as the head coach for the Otago ITM Cup team, with Highlanders' general manager Roger Clark congratulating the former All Black playmaker on his new position.

"On behalf of the Highlanders, I would like to congratulate Tony on his appointment," he said.

"Tony has proven his coaching ability at ITM Cup and Japanese Top-League level, and we're thrilled he is joining the Highlanders' coaching team for 2014. It's also pleasing from a franchise-wide point of view that there is a clear coaching pathway from ITM Cup to Super Rugby level."
