Notebook (1-10): Adam Breneman promoted to TE coach at Arizona State

Update: 12:30 p.m.

**Former Penn State tight end Adam Breneman has been promoted to tight ends coach by Arizona State coach Herm Edwards. Breneman had been a graduate assistant with the Sun Devils.

The story was first reported by Sun Devil Source, with more details here. From that story:

In his first year in Tempe, Breneman impressed ASU coaches with his recruiting ability and practice contributions in the skill development of offensive players including tight ends, which are used extensively in second-year offensive coordinator Zak Hill’s scheme. Breneman is just a few years removed from leading the nation in receptions by a tight end in 2016 and 2017 at Massachusetts, which led to second-team All-American honors from multiple outlets following his senior season.

Adam Breneman

Breneman, a prized recruit from Cedar Cliff High School in Camp Hill, played at Penn State during the 2013 and ’15 seasons. He suffered a knee injury that caused him to miss the 2014 season, and he only played in two games in 2015. He caught 15 passes for 186 yards and three TDs in 2013.

Breneman was able to return to a high level of football at UMass for his final two college seasons in 2016 and ’17. He caught 134 passes for 1,572 yards and 12 TDs over those two seasons.

These are his overall college stats.

This is from the Sun Devil Source story:

Breneman, 25, is three weeks younger than ASU defensive backs coach Chris Hawkins, who was the youngest Pac-12 assistant coach at the time of his addition in December of 2019. In that month, Edwards also hired then-29-year-old Prentice Gill to coach his team’s wide receivers. Breneman and Hawkins are believed to be the youngest assistant coaches at ASU in recent decades as well as the youngest currently in the conference.
