Arkansas Coaching Rumors: Garrick McGee To Be Announced, According To Report

The Arkansas Razorbacks will reportedly announce their new head coach early next week, with popular interim candidates including running backs coach Tim Horton, assistant Taver Johnson and offensive coordinator Paul Petrino. Keeping the staff intact appears to be a high priority considering it's already April, but there is a way the program could bring on a new head coach from another school while still maintaining stability.

UAB Blazers coach Garrick McGee has been asked multiple times by reporters about the Arkansas job, and, according to a report by FootballScoop.com, he'll accept:

Last Wednesday we told you that two informed sources told us that Garrick McGee would be the new head coach at Arkansas. Today, we received further confirmation of those reports. Both sources we heard from today tell us to look for McGee to be announced no later than Monday (reminder both teams have their Spring games this Saturday).

McGee was the OC for the Hogs until taking the UAB job after last season. To this point, he's sort of denied looking into the Arkansas job, but mostly just wants reporters to not ask him after they've already asked him once.
