For Tim Brewster, Mississippi State was a one-and-done deal. The former Gophers head coach was hired by Dan Mullen to coach wide receivers in 2012, but was moved to tight ends coach last month.
That was until Brewster received a call from Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher to join the Seminoles as the team's tight ends coach. In an interview with the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, Brewster said the opportunity to coach at FSU, not a reported raise, was the reason behind the move.
"I spent nine years coaching at the University of North Carolina and the only team we didn't beat while I was at North Carolina was Florida State," Brewster told the paper, adding that money played "absolutely zero" role in the move. "I obviously had a very strong appreciation for Florida State and the type of teams they had and the tradition and history here."
Brewster's annual salary at MSU was $225,000, and it's believed he could make as much as $275,000 with FSU.
