UAB head coach Garrick McGee bolts to become Louisville OC

It’s not everyday that an FBS program loses its head coach to become a coordinator at another college program.

According to ESPN’s Joe Schad, Blazers coach Garrick McGee is stepping down to re-unite with Bobby Petrino as Louisville’s offensive coordinator.

McGee coached under Petrino at Arkansas, first as quarterbacks coach (2008-2009) and later offensive coordinator (2010-2011).

McGee went just 3-9 and 2-10 in two seasons at UAB and was already under fire there.

The Blazers have just three winning seasons in 18 years at the Division I level, with the last coming in 2004 under Watson Brown.
