Former Maryland football wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator Gunter Brewer has been hired as Virginia Tech’s director of high school relations, according to a Virginia Tech release.

Brewer became a Terps assistant coach prior to the 2022 season and came to College Park with more than three decades of coaching experience.

Brewer coached the passing attack that averaged the most yards per game in the Big Ten in 2023. Receivers Jeshaun Jones and Tai Felton both ranked in the top seven among all Big Ten wideouts in yards. Kaden Prather finished 12th in the conference.

Prather was named an All-Big Ten honorable mention, while Felton and Jones both landed on the All-Big Ten third team. Felton broke out in 2023 under Brewer’s tutelage, more than doubling his season bests in receptions, yards and touchdowns. Each of Jones’ best seasons came with Brewer as his coach.

Brewer coached a trio of players in 2022 that would go on to be undrafted NFL free agents — Rakim Jarrett, Jacob Copeland and Dontay Demus Jr. Jarrett was a three-time All-Big Ten honorable mention.

The position with Virginia Tech will be Brewer’s first in a non-coaching role since 1990, and the 12th stop in his long career.
