“It’s a loss for us, but this is how it’s supposed to work. You want people who are really talented on your staff who can come in and contribute and have a great experience and hopefully learn and grow at the same time and then hopefully be able to advance careers and move on to something that that person wants. Mike’s ready to do this again. He’s excited and we’re thrilled for him. Much deserved, he’s a great choice.”

Mike Brown Wife
Mrs. Brown formerly known as Carolyn Nancy Mossman was born on June 23, 1970; Carolyn and her twin sister Elizabeth aka Liz Lockley were adopted by white parents when they were just 16 days old. They never met their biological father, who they later learn was a coach and had died, but they did meet their biological mom.
Carolyn Brown, once a student at the University of Colorado, first studied psychology and then switched to English, with dreams of becoming an educator; it was around that time that she met Mike Brown when she was 23 at a bar in Denver, as a video coordinator for the Nuggets.
She told him she already had a boyfriend, but since he didn’t believe her, he continued to pursue her.
“A determined and chatty sort, he knew he was making progress when her one word answers became two. He eventually walked her to her car and offered tickets for her and her alleged boyfriend to come see the Nuggets, where Brown was working as a video coordinator. She accepted and then offered him a ride to his car. But he was so embarrassed by the beat-up old pickup truck he was driving that he declined. He probably floated back there anyway.”
“I thought she was amazing,” he said. “That was it,” Carolyn Brown said. They met on a Thursday and by Tuesday they were inseparable. He was attracted by her intelligence and authenticity. She liked how easily she could talk to him.
Long story short, Carolyn and coach Mike Brown tied the knot in Colorado in 1995. Nowadays, they are the proud parents of two handsome and amazing sons; Elijah and Cameron.
While they lived in Cleveland, Carolyn Brown worked at Douglas MacArthur Girls Leadership Academy.
