The Florida Gators may be close to hiring Boise St. Broncos offensive coordinator Brent Pease as their new offensive coordinator, according to multiple reports. Pat Dooley of Gatorsports.com writes simply "Looks like Brent Pease new Florida OC." However, Pease to Florida might not be a done deal just yet. As Chadd Cripe of Bronco Beat reports, though Pease is "likely" headed to Florida, he could also accept the Alabama Crimson Tide's offer.
Pease, a veteran quarterback of the NFL, CFL, World League of American Football, and the Arena Football League, has an extensive coaching career. He's been with the Broncos since 2006, when he took over as the wide receivers coach. The following season, he was promoted to assistant head coach, a position he held until the 2011 season, in which he handled offensive coordinator duties. Boise State went 12-1 and scored 44.2 points per game, good for No. 5 in the nation, with Pease as its offensive coordinator.
The Gators' offensive coordinator position opened up after Charlie Weis left to take the Kansas Jayhawks' head-coaching position.
