Report: Louisville to hire former Sooners QB Garrick McGee as off. coordinator Published: January 9, 2014

In arguably the most shocking move of the post-bowl season thus far, Louisville introduced Bobby Petrino back as head coach on Thursday.

It looks like Petrino is going to call on a former Sooner to help him with the offense.'s Joe Schad is reporting that current Alabama-Birmingham head coach and former OU quarterback Garrick McGee will join Petrino's staff as offensive coordinator. McGee had roles as Petrino's quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator during a stint at Arkansas from 2008-2011 before landing the job at UAB. During his time at Arkansas, McGee coached some of the top offenses in the SEC and was a 2011 Broyles Award finalist (nation's top assistant coach).

McGee, a Tulsa native, quarterbacked for the Sooners two seasons (1994-1995), ending his career fourth on OU's career passing list with 2,449 yards. He was named the Big Eight Newcomer of the Year by the league's coaches in 1994.
