Tim Brewster, who arrived in Minnesota promising high caliber football, the Rose Bowl and a Big Ten championship, has joined a long list of football coaches who haven’t been able to get the job done at the Minneapolis school.

Brewster, was fired Sunday after just 3 1/2 years on the job. He was let go one day after the Golden Gophers lost to Purdue to fall to 1-6 in his fourth season on the sidelines. Brewster went 15-30 at Minnesota, 6-21 in the Big Ten and the loss to the Boilermakers was their sixth straight defeat.

He never beat Minnesota’s chief rivals, Wisconsin and Iowa and was 0-10 in trophy games.

He will be paid $600,000 to buyout his contract.

He was hired at Minnesota as the head coach after never have been a head coach or a coordiantor in college or the NFL.

Minnesota athletic director Joel Maturi asked former star QB Tony Dungy to take over the program, but he wasn’t interested. Instead, the former Colts and Buccaneers coach will guide the search committee who want the right coach like when they hired Tubby Smith for the basketball team.
