After much speculation, Boise State Broncos offensive coordinator Brent Pease has officially accepted the same job at the University of Florida. Pease had been with the Broncos since 2006, when he started in Boise as the wide receivers coach, a position that he held until last season, when he was promoted to offensive coordinator. Pease has also previously been the offensive coordinator for the Kentucky Wildcats and Baylor Bears.
In 2011, the Broncos averaged 481.3 yards and 44.2 points per game, good for ninth and fifth in the country, respectively. Prior to the 2011 season, Pease briefly accepted the offensive coordinator position for the Indiana Hoosiers, before reneging on that agreement when he was offered the same job at Boise State after the Broncos lost then-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin to the Texas Longhorns.
The Broncos will now be naming a new offensive coordinator for the second year in a row, and if recent history is any indication, head coach Chris Petersen will promote from within. Logical candidates would include Robert Prince, the team's current wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator, and Chris Strausser, the offensive line coach and run game coordinator.
