10:56 AM ET 03.03 | A bit of a football journeyman, Tim Brewster has coached football at both the college and professional levels, and he has done so in more than a half-dozen cities. So when the opportunity to coach at Florida State presented itself, the now former Mississippi State assistant couldn't say no. "I spent nine years coaching at the University of North Carolina and the only team we didn't beat while I was at North Carolina was Florida State," Brewster told the Clarion-Ledger in an interview Friday. "I obviously had a very strong appreciation for Florida State and the type of teams they had and the tradition and history here." A bit of a football journeyman, Tim Brewster has coached football at both the college and professional levels, and he has done so in more than a half-dozen cities. Although FSU has yet to announce an official hire, Brewster was added to the Seminoles' staff Wednesday as their new tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator. The addition helped head coach Jimbo Fisher wrap up an offseason that was defined by coaching change. Seven total assistants had to be replaced for six jobs. Billy Napier, FSU's tight ends coach for 22 days, was one of them. In addition to stating why he decided to come to FSU after just one season in Starkville, Miss., Brewster told the Clarion-Ledger money played "absolutely zero" role in bringing him to Tallahassee. He was reportedly set to receive a $25,000 raise that would have given him $250,000 per year at Mississippi State.

Replacing a coach with 22 days experience can be a daunting task. I hope that the money is guaranteed.

So the real question is how much is he getting at FSU? When they say it isn't about the $$, chances are that it is.
