Pease has been hired as new offensive coordinator.
Florida football coach Will Muschamp has picked up his first victory over his mentor, Alabama’s Nick Saban.
In what was billed as a looming tug-of-war between UF and Alabama for the services of Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease, Muschamp and the Gators apparently had the stronger pull.
Pease has been hired as the Gators’ new offensive coordinator and will coach the quarterbacks, sources confirmed to The Sun on Tuesday. Florida will make the announcement Wednesday. An AP source said Pease agreed to a three-year deal worth more than $500,000.
Pease, 47, just completed his first season as the offensive coordinator for Boise State, which had one of the leading offenses in the NCAA in 2011 — the Broncos ranked sixth in scoring (44.2 points per game), 10th in total offense (481.3 yards per game), first in sacks allowed (eight) and fourth in pass efficiency (171.57). Boise State finished the season at 12-1 and No. 8 in the final AP poll.
