San Jose State hires Oregon State's Brent Brennan as coach

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- San Jose State has hired Oregon State assistant Brent Brennan as its new head football coach.

Athletic director Gene Bleymaier announced Wednesday that Brennan will replace the fired Ron Caragher as coach of the Spartans.

Brennan, 43, was an assistant coach at San Jose State from 2005-10 under Dick Tomey and Mike MacIntyre. Brennan spent the past six seasons as wide receivers coach at Oregon State, where he coached standouts like Brandin Cooks and Markus Wheaton.

Caragher went 19-30 in four seasons before being fired last month.
