UAB head coach Garrick McGee leaving to join Bobby Petrino's staff at Louisville

UAB head coach Garrick McGee has reportedly accepted the offensive coordinator position on Bobby Petrino's staff at Louisville. (

A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that UAB coach Garrick McGee is stepping down and has agreed to become Bobby Petrino's offensive coordinator at Louisville.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the UAB had not announced McGee is leaving after two seasons. He was 5-19 with the Blazers, including 2-10 this past season.

A UAB spokesman did not immediately respond to a phone message or email.

McGee worked with Petrino at Arkansas from 2008-2011, the last two seasons as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
