In 2018, Coach Brumett returns for his fifth season as Maryville’s Assistant Head Coach and Defensive Line Coach after extensive experience at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Brevard College.
Brumett was a three-year starter for East Tennessee State University as the Buccaneer’s outside linebacker. He paced the squad in tackles in 2002 and was second on the team in total stops in 2003. As the ETSU program disbanded, Brumett took his talents to Chapel Hill, North Carolina and excelled as a senior tight end on the 2004 Tar Heel squad. He completed his Bachelor of Arts degree requirements from North Carolina in 2005.
At the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2007, Coach Brumett served as a defensive assistant coach while focusing on the development of the outside linebackers. He also assisted in the Moc’s punt return game where his returners were ranked second in the Southern Conference in punt return average and 15th nationally.
From 2008-2011, Brumett led Brevard College’s defense as the Tornado’s defensive coordinator. He developed 14 All-South Athletic Conference performers while his defense ranked in the top three in total defense within the league in three of his four seasons with the Tornados.
