With current Panthers coach Matthew Elliott being told to leave at seasons end, Brown has been a front-runner for the vacant head coaching position for some time now.
With his wife giving birth to their third child, Brown said his decision was always going to come some time after the birth.
“I’ve always said I’d wait a few weeks after the baby was born to make a decision,” Brown said.
“In the next week or two, I’d like to get it settled – not only for my own sake but for the club’s sake, for recruiting and retaining players going forward.
“I’d like to think in the next couple of weeks we’ll get things sorted, one way or the other about what’s going to happen.”
