Report: Hog OC McGee Talks To FAU About Head Coaching Job

The website FAUOwlAccess.com reported yesterday that Arkansas offensive coordinator Garrick McGee has interviewed for the head coaching job at Florida Atlantic and “he possibly could have an offer to be the next coach already in hand.”

The Owls are 1-10 in Howard Schnellenberger’s final season at the helm and still have a game to play with Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. 

When it comes to McGee, apparently the writers at OwlAccess are in favor of finding someone with a more proven background as they suggest FAU’s athletic director talk to Ron Zook and Dennis Erickson before rushing into a hire of Bobby Petrino’s coordinator.

It’s appropriate to note that Zook’s offensive coordinator at Illinois — before being fired this week — was former Arkansas offensive coordinator Paul Petrino.

McGee has been at Arkansas for four seasons and has led the offense for the past two.  He is one of five finalists for this year’s Broyles Award which goes to the nation’s top assistant coach.

I don't know if McGee's ready to be a head coach, but I'd take him over Zook or Erickson.

John, since the regular season is over, I'd be interested in reading your assessment of the coaching job of each of the 12 SEC head coaches (from 1 to 12, best to worst) this season. Thanks

Willy McGhee...

That's already put to bed and should be posted this week.

Thanks for reading,
John
