Actually it is the other way around.  A brown bear is a grizzly, it's just one that lives on the coast and gets to eat a lot of high protein salmon.  Or as I describe them a brown bear is a grizzly on steroids.

To clarify, official taxonomy

To clarify, official taxonomy is that the Brown bear (Ursus arctos) is the primary species, the grizzly bear (U. a. horribilis) and the Kodiak bear (U. a. middendorffi) are sub-species. Some classify the coastal brown bear (U. a. gyas) as a sub-species as well. So the Brown bear covers all sub-species, which of course includes grizzly.
