Britt Broady was been named the head coach of the Brown University field hockey program

“We are extremely excited to announce Britt Broady as our new field hockey head coach and to welcome Britt, her husband Jimmy, and two daughters to the Brown family,” said Calhoun. “Britt’s wealth of coaching experience and competitiveness at premier academic institutions, along with a strong sense of values alignment, made her stand out among an outstanding pool of candidates.”

“I am incredibly impressed with the energy and excitement Grace and her staff have constructed in a short period of time,” said Broady. “Their vision of how Brown Athletics will grow and excel while developing their scholar-athletes aligns with my coaching philosophy, passion and desire to win. I am honored to lead the field hockey program at Brown in this pivotal time.

“I would also like to express my appreciation to the administration, staff and student-athletes at UC Davis. I am grateful for their commitment to the field hockey program and the progress made in the past five seasons. I learned so much in my time as an Aggie and feel very prepared for this next opportunity.”

Broady comes to College Hill after spending the last five seasons as head coach of the UC Davis program. Under Broady, the Aggies set a program win-percentage record with eight wins in the 2019 season which included wins over American and rival UC Berkeley.

In the 2021 season, UC Davis finished with wins over Bellarmine, Brown, New Hampshire, Ohio, St. Louis, and Stanford. Senior Madison Theodore earned the program’s first multi-year All-Region selection and freshman Caroline Stutte was named to the America East All-Rookie team.

The 2019 Aggies finished the season with an 8-9 overall record and ranked 18th in the NCAA in shutouts per game (0.29) and 20th in the NCAA in goals against average (1.39). Senior goalkeeper Chelsea Bigelow was named a 2019 NFHCA All-Region honoree after leading the America East conference in shutouts (5) and finished third in the NCAA in save percentage (.806), 12th in the NCAA in saves per game (6.12), and 18th in the NCAA in goals against average (1.39).

In total, Broady helped 13 Aggies garner All-America East honors and three Aggies earn NFHCA All-Region honors in her tenure.

In the classroom, Broady’s UC Davis squads excelled with double-digit Aggies regularly named to the NFHCA National All-Academic Squad. A program-best 12 Aggies were named to the NFHCA National Academic squad in 2018 and 2020.
