MSU And FSU Battling Over Brewster

Reports of Tim Brewster’s move from Mississippi State to Florida State seem to have been a bit premature.  Today there’s still some back-and-forth going on as FSU tries to hire the tight ends coach and MSU tries to keep him.

At this point we can be sure of just one thing — the ex-Minnesota head coach will be making a lot more money next season… either in Tallahassee or Starkville.  But while money will likely play a pretty big role in Brewster’s ultimate decision, Bulldog fans are taking to Twitter to try and convince him to stay in the Magnolia State.

There’s just one catch, of course.  Do you really think Brewster is hanging out on Twitter as two programs compete for his services?

Brewster has been at State for six months, coaching the schools receivers last year before being assigned tight ends two weeks ago.

Update: The Florida State Rivals Site ($) says the deal with Brewster was finalized today. He will coach tight ends for Jimbo Fisher.

Rumors: Beamer The Younger On Bama’s List, Too

It’s a week before signing day and all through the house, not a creature is stirring… except Nick Saban with a stack of resumes.

Saban is searching for a replacement for departed receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Curt Cignetti who took the head coaching job at Indiana University of Pennsylvania last week.

Yesterday, reports surfaced connecting Kentucky receivers coach — and Alabama native — Tee Martin to the Tide’s job.  Former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster has also been named as a candidate.

Now rumors are increasing that South Carolina’s Shane Beamer is a candidate as well.  Beamer worked with the Gamecocks’ special teams and strong safeties last year.  Two weeks ago, Steve Spurrier took the safeties duties off his plate so he could focus on the specialty units.  He is also Carolina’s recruiting coordinator.

It’s doubtful that Alabama will hire Cignetti’s replacement before next Wednesday.  If they do, it means some assistant has left his old school in quite the lurch just prior to signing day.  Here’s guessing neither Joker Phillips nor Steve Spurrier would be very appreciative of such a move.

Bama Coaching Search Could Include UK’s Martin

Yesterday Nick Saban said he’s had a hard time researching coaches’ resumes while out on the road recruiting.  But that doesn’t mean there aren’t rumors to discuss.

Alabama lost receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Curt Cignetti to the head coach’s position at Indiana University of Pennsylvania last week.  So who’s a possibility to replace him?

Kentucky receivers coach Tee Martin. 

The former national title-winning quarterback at Tennessee just finished his first year on Joker Phillips’ staff in Lexington.  According to the folks at KentuckySportsRadio.com, Martin “is on Nick Saban’s radar as a finalist for the job.”  Martin is an Alabama native.

FootballRumorMill.com believes former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster “could be a candidate” at Bama, too.
