Fully Staffed

After nearly a three month long search, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher now has a full coaching staff once again.

It was finalized Wednesday afternoon when FSU and former Mississippi State wide receivers coach Tim Brewster reached an agreement bringing Brewster to Tallahassee.

There was a lot of back and forth action between Brewster, Mississippi State, and FSU, but in the end FSU won out and got the guy that Fisher wanted.

Brewster, 52, has a very strong background in coaching the tight end position. He has spent a total of 18 seasons coaching tight ends both at the Division I-A level as well as in the NFL.

Before a brief one year stint with the Bulldogs, Brewster spent the 2011 season as a sideline analyst for Fox Sports covering both the NFL and College football.

Prior to 2011 Brewster spent four seasons as the head coach at Minnesota where he finished with a 15-30 record from 2007-2010. He guided the Golden Gophers to back-to-back Insight.com bowl appearances.

From 2002-2006 Brewster coached tight ends in the NFL with the majority of that time being spent with the San Diego Chargers. He is widely credited with turning Chargers tight end Antonio Gates from a project into an All-Pro.

Before going to the NFL, Brewster spent 11 seasons with current Texas head coach Mack Brown. The first nine seasons at North Carolina, then following Brown in 1998 when he took the head coaching job at Texas.
