Sources have confirmed with CoachingSearch.com that former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster (51) has accepted the wide receivers job at Mississippi State. Dan Mullen interviewed Brewster on Wednesday morning in Starkville.
Brewster, who recently signed with CBS Sports to serve as a college football game analyst, replaces Angelo Mirando who resigned on Sunday afternoon for unforeseen personal reasons.
Brewster was 15-30 in his career at Minnesota, but led the Gophers to the Insight Bowl in 2007 and 2008.
His career includes assistant coaching stints at North Carolina (1988-97), Texas (1998-2001), San Diego Chargers (2002 - 2004), and Denver Broncos (2005 - 2006). Brewster worked alongside Mike Shanahan in Denver and Marty Schottenheimer in San Diego.
Based on my recent observation, Brewster is walking into a pretty darn good situation.
The Mississippi State offensive staff includes Les Koenning Jr., Greg Knox, John Hevesy, and Scott Sallach.
The Bulldogs open the season against Jackson State. The next three games are against Auburn, at Troy, and South Alabama.
