One of Texas A&M’s top recruiters is set to take a new job with a former colleague, according to a report.
Tight ends coach Tim Brewster is set to take the same position on Mack Brown’s new staff at North Carolina, according to 247Sports. The news comes only a couple of weeks before the 72-hour early signing period that opens on Dec. 19.
When Jimbo Fisher was hired as A&M’s coach last year, he brought Brewster with him from Florida State. Brewster spent five seasons under Fisher and helped the Seminoles — according to 247Sports.com’s composite ranking — gather the top recruiting classes in the ACC.
But before Brewster and Fisher worked together, he had a long history of working with Brown. Brewster spent nine seasons as an assistant at North Carolina, the majority of which overlapped with Brown’s first tenure with the Tar Heels from 1988-97.
When Brown took over at Texas, Brewster followed the coach to Austin, where they worked together for four seasons before Brewster left for a job in the NFL.
Brewster is one seven A&M assistants who are under contract with the university, according to an open records request released in October. He earns $475,000 in base salary on a deal that is set to expire in Jan. 2021.
According to the deal approved by the university in July, Brewster will owe 25 percent of his annual base salary for taking an assistant job outside of the SEC.
Given Brewster’s role as a recruiter on A&M’s staff, this could impact Fisher’s first signing class in a full recruiting cycle. The Aggies currently have the No. 2 class in the country, according to 247Sports’ composite ranking.
