Herbert Brown, section chief of the FBI’s gang and drug section at headquarters, will take over the Sacramento FBI office in January, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Brown, 53, a former fullback with the UC Davis football team in the 1970s, replaces Drew Parenti, who retired in October. He’ll supervise 160 agents, the paper reported.

The paper reported that Brown was promoted to section chief of the FBI’s Gang Criminal Enterprise Section in 2008.

The FBI on Friday confirmed the appointment.

Drew Parenti, head of the FBI’s Sacarmento bureau, is retiring to take a job as vice president of security for Penske Truck Leasing in Reading, Pa., the Sacramento Bee is reporting.

Parenti, 50, a 26 year bureau veteran, said the FBI is “a hard organization to leave,” according to the paper.

U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner told the Bee: “I am very, very sad to see him go. We had some controversial prosecutions a few years ago that obviously took a toll on our relationship” with the Muslim American community, the paper said.

“Drew came in and helped us get on a lot better footing, and I think that has paid dividends for law enforcement and the community,” said Wagner. “He immediately took an interest in reaching out to members of underserved communities.”
