Arkansas offensive coordinator Garrick McGee released a statement this morning announcing that he had withdrawn his name from the head coaching search at Tulsa. This comes after two days of meetings and reports that McGee was already negotiating a deal with the school.
“I have decided to withdraw my name from consideration for the head coach position at Tulsa,” the statement read. “My goal is to one day be a head coach and there are a number of considerations that factor into when that time will come. I appreciate the opportunity Tulsa gave me to meet about their program and wish them the best of luck in their search. I look forward to continuing to work with Coach (Bobby) Petrino toward out goal of winning championships.”
When you see a coach withdraw his name it usually means someone else is about to be named head coach. Perhaps McGee and Tulsa couldn’t hammer out deals on a contract, but most will assume that Golden Hurricane officials decided to go in another direction.
