Sources have shared with FightinGators.com that Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease is expected to be named Florida's offensive coordinator in the very near future replacing the departed Charlie Weis. Pease comes to Florida with four years of playing experience in the NFL and ten years of coaching experience in division one football with eight seasons as an offensive coordinator.
Pease has had stops as the offensive coordinator for the Kentucky Wildcats in 2001 and with the Baylor Bears from 2003 to 2005 before heading to Boise State. Under Pease, Boise State has ranked as one of the top offenses in the country passing the football and scoring points. In the 2011 season, the Broncos finished 11th in the country passing the football and fifth in the country in scoring with 44.3 points per game. Both were areas where the Gators struggled in 2011 under offensive coordinator Charlie Weis.
Andy Hutchins of SB Nation's Florida blog Alligator Army gives his take on the potential hire of Pease as offensive coordinator:
My guess: If news is leaking now and Pease's supposed meeting with Alabama's Nick Saban was coming on Tuesday, Pease has likely already verbally agreed to a deal with Florida, and the GatorZone staff is writing up its features on him for Tuesday as I type. (Redman writes that it is unlikely Pease will have that meeting.)
If so, I think it's a wonderful hire for Muschamp, and look forward to explaining why to all of you
