UAB Head Coach Garrick McGee to Louisville as OC per source
— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) January 9, 2014
McGee will replace Shawn Watson, who has been the OC for the Cardinals since 2011. Tom Jurich made the transition of Watson to Texas official during a press conference this morning introducing new head coach Bobby Petrino.
McGee had an overall record of 5-19 while head coach of UAB. The decision to leave UAB was almost assured after finishing a disappointing season by going 2-10 in 2013.
McGee coached under Bobby Petrino in Arkansas as his OC/QB’s coach from 2008-2011. This is a significant pickup for new head coach bobby Petrino, and one that demonstrates Petrino’s known high-powered offensive strategy.
