San Jose State To Reportedly Hire Brent Brennan As Head Coach

San Jose State has hired Brent Brennan as its new head coach, according to a report. The Spartans desperately need new life injected into the program.


San Jose State has found its next program-building architect, as Oregon State wide receivers coach Brent Brennan will be named the next head coach of the Spartans, according to John Canzano of The Oregonian.

SJSU was looking for a new head coach after athletic director Gene Bleymaier let go of Ron Caragher after four unsuccessful seasons. Under Caragher’s direction, the Spartans never registered a winning season, topping out at 6-6 in his first year, only one season removed from a 10-2 campaign.

Brennan, who is the only holdover from Mike Riley’s coaching staff at Oregon State, is a Redwood City native and UCLA graduate who spent six years at San Jose State in a variety of offensive coaching roles under Dick Tomey and Mike MacIntyre. He understands the challenges of this job and still holds recruiting connections throughout the state due to stints at SJSU, Cal Poly, Arizona, Washington, Hawaii, and Woodside High School (CA) during his coaching career. He has also helped players such as Brandin Cooks, Markus Wheaton, James Jones and Kassim Osgood reach the NFL.

This is certainly a tough gig, and it’s not the right one for every coach. It is the same program that was arguably buried and left to dissolve at one point. Amid APR shortcomings and severe penalties imposed by the NCAA, this program was left for dead.

Tomey and MacIntyre proved that you can win with the Spartans, but it takes a lot of “buy in” from everyone in the program—from the top of the administration to every individual player.

This was a big hire for Bleymaier because SJSU lost all of the momentum from the MacIntyre era during the rough Caragher tenure. At least now, the Spartans will have a head coach that understands the SJSU culture and will embrace the uphill climb that this job entails.
