Brewster Announces Staff Departure

University of Minnesota head football coach Tim Brewster announced today that offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch has decided to return to the National Football League and has accepted a position on Pete Carroll’s new staff with the Seattle Seahawks.

Fisch worked eight seasons in the NFL and was the Denver Broncos’ wide receivers coach prior to joining the Minnesota coaching staff last January.

“Great people are always going to be in demand,” Brewster said. “It’s part of the profession in which we work. This is a great opportunity for Jedd and I want to thank him for all of his efforts on behalf of our program. I wish him the best.”

Brewster said he is already in the process of conducting a nationwide search and indicated that he will move quickly to fill the Gophers’ offensive coordinator position.
