Garrick McGee is set to become the offensive coordinator at Louisville, according to ESPN's Joe Schad. McGee spent the last two seasons as the head coach at UAB, where he compiled a 5-19 record. It was his first head coaching job.
Prior to landing in Birmingham, McGee spent four seasons coaching at Arkansas, all of them under new Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino, who was officially introduced on Thursday. McGee coached the quarterbacks in Fayetteville in 2008 and 2009 before taking over the offensive coordinator duties beginning in 2010. In 2011, he was a finalist for the Broyles Award, which is given to the nation's top assistant coach.
McGee also spent four years at Northwestern, where he served in various roles, including quarterbacks coach, wide receivers coach and offensive coordinator. He got his start in coaching at Langston University in 1996, and his first FBS coaching gig came at Toledo in 2002.
