Very excited to work alongside Jim Dewey Brown," Murphy explained and added that, while the position of commissioner might be a new one for Brown but he's familiar with the CNFR itself. "I think he is just really looking forward to putting on a great event and growing it."
Brown played at his time at the CNFR alongside Tarleton State University during the time his college days were over and has coaching experience in the CNFR as an assistant coach at Tarleton and later as the head coach at New Mexico State University. Prior to his transition into the role of commissioner Brown was the arena director for each year beginning in 2009.
Brown has said that he's visited Casper numerous times and said Brown believes that the town is a wonderful place to host the CNFR because of the general weather being pleasant as well as the numerous outdoor activities Casper provides teams participating in rodeo.
Teams frequently have the chance to hike, fish or paddling in the North Platte River, and should they have the time to do so, they may also go to Yellowstone National Park, according to Brown. Sarah Neely, director of public relations at the Rodeo Association, said CNFR organizers are working to put together events like a softball competition or a golf event, as well as an event for clay pigeon shooting for rodeo players this summer.
