OSU: Receivers coach Brent Brennan staying

NEW OREGON STATE football coach Gary Andersen announced Monday that wide receivers coach Brent Brennan has been retained in his current position for the 2015 season, OSU said in a release.

“When I met with Coach Brennan it was clear that we have similar philosophies and vision for this program,” Coach Andersen said. “He cares about these kids; he has done a tremendous job guiding them on and off the field. He will be a great fit with our staff.”

“I’m honored that Coach Gary Andersen has afforded me the opportunity to be on his staff,” Brent Brennan said. “I love being a part of the OSU football program and the community. I’m very happy here and I’m excited to work with Coach Andersen to help him reach the goals he has for this program.”

Andersen said at his introductory he hopes to announce more names this week, but that the full staff is likely to be finalized in the coming weeks.

Brennan just completed his fourth season for the Beavers. He has coached record-setting and All-America wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Markus Wheaton, both currently in the NFL. He also helped James Rodgers break the OSU record for all-purpose yards during the 2011 season.

Brennan’s recruiting territory this past season was Los Angeles/Orange County.

His coaching career includes assistant coaching positions at San Jose State and Cal Poly, and GA positions at Arizona, Washington and Hawai’i. Brennan began his coaching career in 1996 at Woodside High School in California.
