Report: Pease To Be Named Florida’s Offensive Coordinator

Brent Pease is set to be introduced as Florida’s new offensive coordinator on Wednesday, according to a report from ESPN.com.

Pease held the same position at Boise State in 2011 after serving as the Broncos’ wide receivers coach from 2007-2010. Pease will replace Charlie Weis, who left Florida in December to become the head coach at Kansas.

Pease was also considered a top target at Alabama, which is looking for a new offensive coordinator after Jim McElwain left to become the head coach at Colorado State.

Former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dick Koetter is one name to watch at Alabama, according to the ESPN report.

New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer could be another candidate at Alabama. Schottenheimer was considered to be an option at Florida before the Gators landed Pease.

UPDATE – Mark Long of the Associated Press reports Pease will receive a three-year contract worth about $500000 annually.

Down To 3: Pease, Schottenheimer And White In Running For UF OC Job

It looks like the Florida offensive coordinator search is down to three candidates: Brent Pease, Brian Schottenheimer and Brian White.  But question marks have to be placed beside all three men’s names.

Pease — the offensive coordinator at Boise State — is reportedly mulling offers from both Florida and Alabama.  It is believed he will meet face-to-face with Nick Saban in New Orleans tomorrow.

Schottenheimer — the New York Jets’ offensive coordinator and former Gator backup quarterback — was thought to have removed his name from Will Muschamp’s hat late last week.  But yesterday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Schottenheimer had not pulled his name from consideration.

Finally, White — UF’s current running backs coach — handled the offensive coordinator duties leading up to the Gators’ bowl win, but things looked much like they did under Charlie Weis (263 total yards, one offensive touchdown.  White is a former offensive coordinator at Wisconsin and UNLV and his promotion would provide the Gators some much-needed continuity on the coaching staff.
