@TuxedoYoda Interested n your take on #GT complaining about #ACC schedule. #Mizzou did similar complaining just before #Big12 exit.
For the third time in two days it appears an SEC school is about to lose an assistant coach on the eve of spring practice. Multiple internet sites are reporting that current Mississippi State tight ends coach Tim Brewster will be joining Florida State’s staff in the same capacity.
Florida State — which lost a wave of assistants this past offseason — snagged Tennessee running backs coach Jay Graham yesterday. (FSU also scooped up ex-Kentucky offensive coordinator Randy Sanders this offseason and it’s believed he will shift from running backs to quarterbacks to make way for Graham.)
Brewster served as Dan Mullen’s receivers coach at MSU last year. He was shifted to tight ends and given the title of “assistant head coach” when Mullen brought in Billy Gonzales to coach receivers 13 days ago.
Brewster was the head coach at Minnesota from 2007 through 2010. Hired last August, he spent just six months in Starkville. The irony in that — if/when Brewster to FSU becomes official — is the fact that Brewster sent out a mid-January tweet suggesting recruiting rival Chris Kiffin at Ole Miss would be leaving the Rebel program.
As of today, Kiffin’s still in Oxford, but it looks like Brewster’s on his way to Tallahassee.
In addition to Brewster and Graham, Ole Miss cornerbacks coach Wesley McGriff was named an assistant coach for the New Orleans Saints last night.
So much for spring football. It’s still coaching-search season in the SEC.
