GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida tight end commit Colin Thompson (Warminster, Pa./Archbishop Wood) said former Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis was a big reason he committed to Florida. Now he's excited about Weis' replacement.

ESPN.com’s SEC blogger Edward Aschoff reported that Florida will name former Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease its new offensive coordinator on Wednesday.

“I think it’s a great pickup for Florida,” Thompson said. “I had a chance to see Boise State play a few times. They use their tight ends a lot. They run the ball and run hard, and they throw it a lot, too. It’s a good offense, and I think he will help us get back to winning SEC and national championships.”
