Pease Hire Official At UF; Ex-UK QB Tweets Warnings

Florida has officially announced the hire of new offensive coordinator Brent Pease this morning.  Pease comes to Gainesville from Boise State where he served as receivers coach for five seasons and as O-coordinator this past year.

The 47-year-old Pease — who was also up for the coordinator slot at Alabama — has also been an OC at Baylor and Kentucky.  His stint at UK under Guy Morriss in 2001 and 2002 coincided with the quarterback tenure of future Giants and Colts backup Jared Lorenzen.

And Lorenzen tweeted a number of warnings about Pease over the weekend:


“Seriously Brent Pease at Florida?  He’s freaking crazy and was brutal at UK when I was there.  Won’t be able to handle it and will be run out!

The good thing about Pease at UF is now we can shut them down.  #nohalftimeadjs

@vaughtviews @ajr0031 just can’t believe it.  They will see him crack early an often.  Sooo mny stories about that person.”


That’s one man’s opinion, of course.  And Lorenzen may still harbor some ill will toward a coaching staff that up and left the Cats for Baylor unexpectedly.

But even if Pease was a poor coach at UK, it’s quite possible that after a decade’s worth of time, Pease isn’t the same coach now that Lorenzen knew then.

Still, Gator fans have to wonder whether the Pillsbury Throwboy’s onto something… or just bitter for some reason.  (That still might be the best sports nickname I’ve ever heard.)
