Florida State assistant Tim Brewster to reunite with Jimbo Fisher at Texas A&M – Orlando Sentinel
Florida State’s most notable assistant coach is leaving the school to reunite with former head coach Jimbo Fisher.
Tim Brewster, an outspoken figure on the FSU coaching staff thanks to his social media posts on Twitter since 2013, announced his intention Tuesday join the Texas A&M coaching staff.
“Nothing but love for the Seminoles, I will be forever grateful to #NoleNation for the opportunity in Tally,” Brewster posted on Twitter. “I will now join Jimbo in College Station. God Bless and always #GoNoles”
Brewster coached tight ends and was FSU’s recruiting coordinator, a role he exceled in with his posts on Twitter that enticed recruits and endeared the Seminoles fan base.
Brewster leaves after four seasons at FSU, where he helped the Seminoles continue luring Top 10 recruiting classes under Fisher. He also helped Buffalo Bills backup Nick O’Leary win the Mackey Award, given to the nation’s top tight end, in 2015.
Brewster becomes the second coach to leave Florida State to follow Fisher to A&M, joining running backs coach Jay Graham, who left the program last week.
Defensive coordinator Charles Kelly may also be on the move after interviewing for the same position at Colorado State, according to a Monday report from 247Sports.
New FSU football coach Willie Taggart has yet to announce a new assistant coach hire after accepting the position on Dec. 5.
Taggart and other remaining coaches on the Seminoles staff are trying to salvage FSU’s 2018 recruiting class, which is ranked seventh in the ACC and 37th nationally, before the new early signing period on Dec. 20.
Interim coach Odell Haggins last week gave no comment when asked which assistant coaches would remain on board to coach the Seminoles for their bowl game.
