For the first time in nearly 40 seasons, a Brown wonâ€™t be on the sideline as a coach for the Maiden football team next season.
Brian Brown resigned as the head football coach of the Blue Devils on Monday.
Brown held a meeting Monday with his players and coaches to announce the decision.
â€śI said when I took this job that I didnâ€™t know how long Iâ€™d be doing it,â€ť Brown said in a phone interview. â€śI just think itâ€™s time. I just have some other things I want to do.â€ť
Brown, a former player at Maiden, spent 13 seasons as a member of the Blue Devilsâ€™ coaching staff.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. â€” Tony Stewart insisted he wasn't a title contender when NASCAR's championship race began.
When it became clear he actually was a viable threat, he kicked it into another gear and vowed to go for broke in his pursuit of Carl Edwards.
Did he ever.
DETROIT â€” Matthew Stafford shook off a couple of early interceptions, then went about leading the Detroit Lions to yet another memorable comeback.
The Lions quarterback matched a career-best with five touchdown passes, the final one a 7-yarder to Brandon Pettigrew with 2:32 left, and the Lions rallied for a 49-35 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
"We were killing ourselves with turnovers," he said. "We knew that we'd be able to score in the second half if we could just keep our hands on the ball."
