Willie Brown placed on leave as FAMU baseball coach

Matt Ryerson-US PRESSWIRE

There's still a lot we don't know about what's going on in the Rattler baseball program.

Willie Brown has had a difficult time in his first two years as the Florida A&M baseball coach.

Now, after being suspended while the university investigates allegations of misconduct involving a player who left the team, there's no guarantee he makes it to a third year.

The university is currently refusing to honor any public records requests from the media, citing a statute that exempts them from releasing information involving an ongoing investigation.

Brown has hired a lawyer, but with no one involved in the case speaking publicly, there's very little information out there as to what is actually going on.

With Brown waiting the results of the school's investigation, the Rattlers baseball team is being run by assistant coach Kevin Clethen.

Brown is an alumnus of Florida A&M, having played there from 1989-1992 before a career in the minor leagues.

He inherited a struggling program so it's unfair to judge him on his 17-40 record in 2012, but it is fair to say that the honeymoon for him in Tallahassee is over.
