Brent Pease was hired by the Florida Gators to be their offensive coordinator heading into the 2012 season, but after two years of having the offense ranked outside the top 100 in scoring and passing yards, the Gators cut ties with him.
After a disappointing season as Washington’s receivers coach, Pease landed a job as UTEP’s offensive coordinator in 2016.
Now, though, as the Miners have struggled their way to an 0-3 start, scoring only 37 points in the process, Pease is reportedly out of a job once again:
Sources indicate Brent Pease has been fired as UTEP offensive coordinator

Granted, two of UTEP’s three losses came to Oklahoma and Arizona, but a 31-14 loss to Rice in Week 2 doesn’t look so good.
Though Florida’s offensive problems went much deeper than Pease (as evidenced by their continued struggles on that side of the ball), he was blamed and fired after the 2015 season.
Where Pease ends up next remains to be seen, but it’s not a good sign that he was fired from UTEP.
