I was told by a source close to the situation that Florida State TE coach/recruiting coordinator Tim Brewster will NOT be joining the Texas staff.
While Brewster, considered one of the best recruiters in all of college football, was under strong consideration by Herman from the moment Herman took over as Texas' head coach, according to sources close to the situation, it appears Herman is simply going in a different direction.
Hiring Brewster, who is FSU's lead recruiter on 2017 5-stars such as RB Cam Akers, DT Marvin Wilson and S Jeffrey Okudah, would have been expensive (Brewster recently got a raise at FSU to more than $500,000 per season). But not hiring Brewster wasn't about money, sources said, it was simply about Herman going in a different direction.
Sources said Herman is close to announcing his offensive coordinator and running backs coach - the last two vacant spots on his Texas coaching staff.
