Florida announces hiring of Brent Pease as offensive coordinator



Florida coach Will Muschamp has officially announced the hiring of new offensive coordinator Brent Pease.

A 21-year coaching veteran at five different schools, Pease spent the previous six seasons at Boise State. He has served 11 seasons as an offensive coordinator and has coached at his alma mater, Montana (1991-98), as well as Northern Arizona (1999-2000), Kentucky (2001-02) and Baylor (2003-05).

“I’m excited to join the University of Florida football family and The Gator Nation,” Pease said. “I’ve always had the utmost respect for Coach Muschamp and the UF program and I’m honored to have the opportunity to work at one of the premier institutions in the nation. I look forward to working with a tremendous coaching staff and, from what I hear, a great group of eager, young football players. Coach Muschamp and I share a lot of the same philosophies so this was a perfect fit. I want to be multiple in our offensive formations and have a balanced attack with tempo. I firmly believe in being fundamentally sound and red-zone efficient. I want to develop our players in a pro-style offense that can help them at the next level. ”

He served as the Broncos' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks’ coach in 2011 after spending the previous five seasons as the team’s wide receivers coach and four as the assistant head coach. Boise State averaged 44.2 points and 481.3 yards per game en route to a 12-1 overall record and a 56-24 victory in the Las Vegas Bowl over Arizona State.
