Gunter Brewer Added to Louisville Football Staff

Scott Satterfield announced the final addition to his coaching staff on Tuesday afternoon, signing Gunter Brewer to be the new wide receivers coach at Louisville.

Brewer joins the U of L coaching staff after spending the 2018 season as the wide receivers coach for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Before arriving in Philadelphia, though, Brewer spent over 30 years as a coach in both college and the NFL. He had spent six years at North Carolina under head coach Larry Fedora as a co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach. During his tenure, he led the Tar Heels to record-setting years on offense, including the 2015 season that saw UNC reach the ACC Championship Game and average 7.3 yards per play, as well as 40.7 points per game. Players under his tutelage at UNC include Ryan Switzer, Quinshad Davis, and Mack Hollins.

Among Brewer’s most notable stops in his coaching career include Oklahoma State (2005-2010), and Marshall (1995-1999). In Stillwater, Brewer mentored receivers such as Dez Bryant and Justin Blackmon, both who would later become first round draft picks. Brewer also served as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Oklahoma State, overseeing the development of players such as Brandon Weeden and Zac Robinson.

Brewer was also a wide receiver at Marshall, most prominently coaching a young Randy Moss in his time there. Marshall had a 50-4 record during Brewer’s tenure at Marshall, which includes a perfect 13-0 season and top-ten final ranking in 1999. In his tenure, Moss, along with Oklahoma State’s Bryant & Blackmon, were Biletnikoff Award finalists, with Moss (1997) and Blackmon (2010) both winning the award.
