Florida State has hired Mississippi State wide receivers coach and former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster as the new tight ends coach, Warchant.com has learned. The deal was finalized on Wednesday.
The hire completes Florida State's coaching staff, which saw a total of seven assistant coaches leave during the offseason including former tight ends coach Billy Napier, who was hired in January and promptly left for a job at Alabama last week.
Brewster, 52, spent last season as Mississippi State's wide receivers coach. Brewster's background is at the tight end position, where he spent 18 seasons as a position coach at the Division I-A and NFL levels.
Before Mississippi State, Brewster spent four seasons as head coach at Minnesota (2007-10), going 15-30 overall. He led the Golden Gophers to a pair of Insight.com Bowl appearances (2008-09).
He is expected to begin work immediately on a series of alligator-themed expressions to fit the bear-free state of Florida. The next logical step for us, we suppose, is to start looking up places that serve chili in Tallahassee.
