Former University of Washington position coach Brent Pease has accepted the UTEP offensive coordinator job according to Miner Rush sources.
Pease was recently let go from Washington by head coach Chris Peterson where he was the wide receivers coach, and will be announced as UTEP's offensive coordinator on January 14th.
His last stint as an offensive coordinator was from 2011-2013 at Florida under Will Mushchamp, and was Boise State's offensive coordinator in 2010 after Bryan Harsin left for Texas.
He was briefly named Indiana's offensive coordinator in 2010, but took over the coordinator duties at Boise State once Harsin left.
From 2000-01, Pease was the offensive coordinator at Kentucky and coached future NFL quarterbacks Jared Lorenzen, and Shane Boyd. He also called plays at Baylor from 2003-05.
Details of his contract were unavailable.
Pease was known for a 12 personnel (one-running back, two tight ends) power run scheme with heavy pre-snap shifts and motions at Florida and at Boise State that wears down defenses and controls the line of scrimmage, making his potential offensive scheme at UTEP a perfect fit with Sean Kugler's wanted run first offensive identity.
UTEP will officially announce their coaching changes on January 14th.
