Brown was also part of the staff for the 1986 and 1990 World Cup finals.
“Since 2010 Craig performed the roles of manager, director and ambassador,” said Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack.
“Craig was a friend to all of us at the club, and a mentor and confidante to many.
“He was one of those rare individuals who was not only effective at what he did but universally loved by all who got to know him.”
Prior to his stint with Scotland, Brown managed Preston North End and Motherwell, and ended his career at Aberdeen in 2013, where he moved into a board position at Pittodrie.
