The veteran assistant has served under the likes of Mack Brown and Jimbo Fisher, as well as a short stint with Mullen at Mississippi State.
Brewster is well known throughout the talent-rich recruiting hotbeds of Texas and South Florida. Bringing him aboard will be a big step in the right direction for Mullen’s goal of locking down in-state talent. The Gators finished the 2020 recruiting cycle with the No. 8 class but continue to seek ways to improve their recruiting processes.
Although the specifics of the deal are not clear just yet, Brewster was recently courted by Jimbo Fisher to join the Texas A&M staff but opted to remain at UNC with Mack Brown. At the time of his most recent contract extension, Brewster was receiving $500,000 per year in Chapel Hill. One can only speculate that Mullen and Company made him a substantial offer to lure him to Gainesville.
