Texas A&M football and Jimbo Fisher have hired former Florida State assistant and ace recruiter Tim Brewster as a tight ends coach for the Aggies.
Texas A&M Football and new head coach Jimbo Fisher’s new staff is slowly coming together the for the 2018 season. Monday it was new offensive coordinator Darrell Dickey and yesterday Tim Brewster dropped the tweet about joining Fisher in College Station.
Brewster’s can be found on twitter using the handle @TimBrewster. His entire twitter page has changed telling the whole world where to find him. He also dropped a tweet thanking those in Tallahassee for the opportunity.
Let’s find out more about Tim Brewster.
Brewster was born in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. He enrolled at Pasadena City College before transferring to the University of Illinois. During his three years, he was an All Big Ten selection twice at tight end. He gave the NFL a go but was cut in 1984 by the New York Giants and in 1985 by the Philadelphia Eagles.
His coaching career started at Purdue in 1986 as a graduate assistant. Guess who was a senior linebacker on that team? Yes, Kevin Sumlin. In 1987, he was named head coach at Central Catholic High School in Lafayette, Indiana. This, according to his Wikipedia page, came on the advice of Paul “Bear” Bryant.
After two years at the high school level, he would join Mack Brown at North Carolina. His first year in 1989 was in a volunteer capacity. He would move into a paid position in 1990. When Brown moved to Texas in 1998, Brewster went along with him. He was very instrumental in the recruitment of future start Vince Young.
In 2002, Brewster decided to head to the NFL and would spend three years in San Diego and two years with Denver.
Brewster was named head coach at the University of Minnesota in 2007, replacing Glen Mason. He would have one winning season and would be fired midway through the 2010 season. After the firing, he would move into television working for FOX in 2011.
In 2012, he was hired at Mississippi State and would spend only one year there before being hired by Fisher at Florida State. Brewster spent the last four years coaching the tight ends and should bring a ton of knowledge to help the Aggies use a position that’s been dormant for a decade.
How will Brewster impact Texas A&M?
I expect the Aggie offense to still be wide open under Fisher and Dickey, but look a little different with formations and sets to find match-ups that favor the offense. We saw during the LSU game the tight end if used properly can cause problems for the defense.
Hopefully in recruiting and with the guys signed in the 2017 class, the Aggie tight end position will move from the shadows into light. Please welcome Tim Brewster and his family to College Station. Stay tuned for other news on the 2018 coaching staff.
