Scott Brown joined the Virginia coaching staff in August, 2010 as a volunteer assistant coach and is now in his fifth season with the program. Brown joined the Virginia staff after four years as a teaching professional, most recently at the Boar's Head Sports Club.

Last year the Cavaliers continued their run of success with their eighth consecutive ACC Championship, their 10th in the past 11 years. Virginia's ACC win streak (regular season and postseason) reached 122 straight matches, the longest streak in conference history in any sport. The team reached the NCAA semifinals for the seventh time in the past eight seasons.

The 2012-13 campaign marked one of the greatest years by any program in collegiate tennis history. In addition to posting an undefeated 30-0 record, Virginia became just the 12th school to win both the NCAA Championship and ITA National Team Indoor Championship in the same year. The Cavaliers had their fifth NCAA individual champion as Jarmere Jenkins and Mac Styslinger won the NCAA Doubles Championship. Jenkins, who also reached the NCAA Singles Championship final and finished the year No. 1 in the ITA Singles Rankings, became the third Cavalier to be named ITA National Player of the Year.

In 2011-12, Brown helped direct the Cavaliers to their second consecutive NCAA Tournament final, as they also won their eighth ACC championship in nine seasons and set a NCAA record by having a NCAA singles quarterfinalist for the seventh consecutive season.

In 2010-11, Brown helped guide the Cavaliers to a 34-1 record and the NCAA final. The team won the ITA National Team Indoor Championship, the ACC regular season and tournament titles, and became the first school in nearly two decades to have five players selected for the NCAA singles championship.

A 2005 graduate of Vanderbilt, Brown helped the Commodores to the NCAA Tournament final and the SEC Championship in 2003. He was a four-time All-SEC selection and still holds the Vanderbilt records for career doubles wins (87) and career combined wins (176). He was ranked as high as No. 17 nationally in singles and No. 4 nationally in doubles during his collegiate career. During his junior career, Brown was ranked No. 1 nationally in doubles in the USTA Boys 18 rankings and in the top 10 nationally in singles.
