Oregon State receivers coach Brent Brennan will be back next season, new head coach Gary Andersen announced on Monday.
“I’m honored that coach Andersen has afforded me the opportunity to be on his staff,” Brennan said in a statement. “I love being a part of the OSU football program and the community. I’m very happy here and I’m excited to work with coach Andersen to help him reach the goals he has for this program.”
Brennan recently completed his fourth season with the Beavers. During his time at OSU, Brennan has coached record-setting and all-American wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Markus Wheaton, both currently in the NFL. He also helped James Rodgers break the school record for all-purpose yards during the 2011 season.
“When I met with coach Brennan it was clear that we have similar philosophies and vision for this program,” Andersen said in a statement. “He cares about these kids. He has done a tremendous job guiding them on and off the field. He will be a great fit with our staff.”
Brennan’s coaching career includes college positions at San Jose State, Cal Poly, Arizona, Washington, Hawaii and at Woodside High in California.
Andersen expects to introduce the remainder of his staff in the coming weeks.
