[dropcap]T[/dropcap]im Brewster is expected to join Florida State’s coaching staff, a source tells CoachScoop.com.
According to the source, Brewster would be the FSU’s tight ends coach and could join the staff as early as today.
Brewster became Mississippi State’s wide receivers coach in August 2012. He shifted to tight ends coach when Billy Gonzales joined the Bulldogs’ staff earlier this month.
Brewster would fill the final opening on Florida State’s offensive staff. Jay Graham was hired as running back’s coach yesterday. Last week, tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator Billy Napier left FSU for Alabama after less than a month on the job. Quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator James Coley left last month for the same position at Miami.
The source expects Randy Sanders to be moved to quarterbacks coach. Sanders spent 14 seasons coaching quarterbacks at Tennessee and Kentucky before joining Jimbo Fisher’s staff as running backs coach in January.
A longtime assistant on Mack Brown’s staffs at North Carolina and Texas, Brewster coached tight ends in the NFL from 2002-06 with San Diego and Denver. He was named head coach at Minnesota in 2007.
Brewster was 15-30 with two bowl appearances in four years with the Gophers. He was fired after a 1-6 start in 2010.
