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.

FAYETTEVILLE - First-year Arkansas offensive coordinator Garrick McGee is one of 36 nominees for the 2010 Broyles Award, which recognizes the top assistant coach in college football.

McGee, who has served as the Razorbacks quarterbacks coach since 2008, replaced Paul Petrino this season and the Arkansas offense hasn’t skipped many beats. The Razorbacks rank in the top 10 nationally in passing offense and total offense, and their 37.9 points per game rank only behind Auburn among Southeastern Conference teams.

It is the second consecutive year an Arkansas offensive coordinator has been nominated for the award, named in honor of former Razorbacks coach and athletics director Frank Broyles. Paul Petrino was one of the initial nominees last season before leaving for Illinois. Petrino is one of the nominees again this year.

McGee is one of four nominees with Arkansas ties. In addition to Petrino, former Arkansas and current Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn was nominated, as was former Razorbacks player Dick Bumpas, now the defensive coordinator at TCU.

The five finalists for the award will be announced next week, with the winner being named at a banquet Dec. 6 in Little Rock.
