“I really do,” he said. “I have a great deal of pride. I poured my heart and soul into helping the Gophers become a championship-caliber football program, that didn’t happen,” he said. “I didn’t win enough games to keep the job at Minnesota, but I certainly watch them and have a great deal of pride.
“Really proud of Ra’Shede Hageman and the job he did. He’s going to be a great NFL player. A lot of things to be proud of that went on at Minnesota while we were there. I watch them now, and Jerry Kill is doing an outstanding job at Minnesota. I think he’s going to lead Minnesota to a Big Ten championship at some point, because I still believe that can happen there.”
Brewster was asked, looking back, if there was anything he would have done differently in his four years with the Gophers. He went 15-30, including two bowl losses, before being fired in October 2010.
“There’s no question that I made mistakes as the head coach at Minnesota,” he said. “I think a lot of it had to do with the changeover on the staff and the continuity of the staff is so critical to your success and we just had too much change. That was certainly my fault and that’s one of the things that I regret.”
