To summarize, despite Arkansas & Petrino's statements, #UAB has NOT offered the job to Garrick McGee.
I find it hard to believe Petrino would make a statemnet like that unless he was told by McGee himself (who had to have been told from the UAB AD himself) that he was hired.
I assume someone jumped the gun on the announcement. He gone.
I think he's been the best assistant coach Arkansas has had in a long long long time. In terms of his character, recruiting skillz, coaching ability, on-field demeanor, etc. He's a class act and I hope he kicks all kinds of tail at UAB before taking a BCS level job, and then one days comes home to be the head man here.
