GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The biggest beneficiaries of offensive coordinator Brent Pease's hiring at Florida -- other than quarterbacks Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett -- might end up being the Gators' receivers.
Kirby Lee/US PresswireBrent Pease will take the reins of Florida's offense.
Pease was the offensive coordinator at Boise State for just one season, and he helped the Broncos finish ninth in the nation in total offense (481.31 yards per game), sixth in scoring (44.23 points per game), 41st in rushing (171.92 yards per game) and 11th in passing (309.38 yards per game) behind record-setting quarterback Kellen Moore. But he spent the five previous seasons tutoring Boise State's receivers and developed two into NFL receivers.
Austin Pettis is the school's all-time leader in receptions (229) and receiving touchdowns (39) and is second in career yardage (2,838). Titus Young is the all-time leader in receiving yards (3,063) and is second in career receptions (204). They were third- and fourth-round draft picks, respectively, last April.
