Early life and educationEdit

Brennan was born and raised in Redwood City, California and attended Saint Francis High School in Mountain View, graduating in 1991.[1][2][3] Brennan later went to UCLA, where he lettered in football in 1993 and 1994 as a wide receiver and graduated in 1996.[1][4]

Coaching careerEdit

Brennan began his coaching career at Woodside High School in Woodside, California as an assistant in 1996. After two seasons at Woodside, Brennan enrolled in graduate school at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and served as a graduate assistant on the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors football team in 1998.[5] Brennan also had stints as a graduate assistant at Washington under Rick Neuheisel in 1999 and Arizona in 2000 under Dick Tomey.[1]

From 2001 to 2004, Brennan was wide receivers coach at Cal Poly under Rich Ellerson.[1] Brennan also became recruiting coordinator in 2004.[5] Cal Poly moved from independence to the Great West Football Conference in 2004 and won the conference championship in its inaugural season there.

Reuniting with Tomey, Brennan became an assistant coach at San Jose State in 2005 and would coach in various capacities for six seasons, encompassing Tomey's entire tenure and Mike MacIntyre's first season. Also a recruiting coordinator, Brennan coached wide receivers in 2005 and 2006, during which he coached future NFL draft picks James Jones and John Broussard and helped San Jose State win its first bowl since 1990 in the 2006 New Mexico Bowl.[1] Brennan coached tight ends while still being recruiting coordinator in the 2007 and 2008 seasons. In 2009, Brennan became co-offensive coordinator and special teams coordinator, while coaching offensive tackles and tight ends as well. When MacIntyre became head coach in 2010, Brennan only coached wide receivers.[1]

From 2011 to 2016, Brennan coached wide receivers at Oregon State, more specifically outside receivers in his final season.[6]
