Report: Ex-Minnesota head coach joining Deion Sanders' staff at Jackson State
Former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster has reportedly landed a new gig, this time on Coach Prime’s staff.
Matt Zenitz of On3 is reporting that Brewster is joining Deion Sanders’ staff at Jackson State ahead of the 2022 season. His role with the program was not mentioned at the time of the report.
Brewster spent each of the last two seasons at Florida, working as the assistant head coach and tight ends coach under Dan Mullen. He’s also had stops at Mississippi State (2012), Florida State (2013-17), Texas A&M (2018) and North Carolina (2019) since his time at Minnesota.
Brewster was the head coach of the Golden Gophers from 2007-10. Minnesota made a big jump from the 2007 campaign to his second year with the program in 2008. The Gophers finished with a 1-11 record in Brewster’s first year followed by a 7-6 campaign and an Insight Bowl appearance.
Minnesota would finish 6-7 in 2009 with a loss in the Insight Bowl again. In 2010, Brewster was terminated midway through the 2010 season in the Twin Cities following a 1-6 start.
Sanders will be entering his third season as the head coach at Jackson State. In the first two years, the Tigers have compiled a 15-5 record, which includes an 11-2 mark in 2021.
