Do you like explosive offensive football? Good. Brent Pease is right with you. Who is Brent Pease? He’s Indiana’s new offensive coordinator and he has a knack for offensive excellence.
Combined with new head coach Kevin Wilson, rated as one of the nation’s best offensive minds during his time at Oklahoma, the two should have Memorial Stadium’s scoreboard lighting up big-time in future years.
At least, that’s the plan.
Pease spent the last five years as the receiver coach at Boise State, the last four as assistant head coach. Boise State went 61-5 with a pair of Fiesta Bowl victories -– including a dramatic 43-42 shootout over Oklahoma.
Pease also spent 10 years as an offensive coordinator for Baylor, Kentucky, Montana and Northern Arizona.
He’s the first offensive coach hired by Wilson, who previously lined up most of his defensive coaching staff.
“Brent has coordinated in the Big 12 and the SEC, and he is coming from one of the most dominant programs in college football over the last decade in Boise State,” Wilson said in a university release. We look forward to integrating his offensive ideas into what we have done in the past.”
Pease brings an uptempo, big-play, attack-oriented philosophy that features a balance between the run and the pass. He even won a national championship, at the NCAA Division I-AA level, while with Montana in the mid-1990s.
“With what Coach Wilson brings from Oklahoma and the opportunity I received at Boise State,” Pease said, “we look forward to playing winning football and going to bowl games.”
