I am not saying he is his brother's equal in coaching skills.  Just that if he has any pride as a coach and a man he will most likely continue to try to go it on his own.

As a wise man once said "frick pride". $300,000 a year coordinator jobs just don't grow on trees.  Yeah, if you can find another OC job elsewhere I'm sure he would prefer that but if you need to support your family you're not going to turn down that kind of job due to "pride".

Pride only hurts. It never helps. You fight through that aMm.

That will be interesting to consider if Paul returns as OC.

But, I thought he was bangin' the wives of the boosters. Oh. Sorry. Wrong lil' bro/assistant coach.

He is a good recruiter. That much we know.

It sucks to lose McGee, but I think there are two potential positives that could serve to offset his loss somewhat.

A.). Petrino treats the opening the same way he does the loss of a player. Don't just replace, upgrade.

B.). McGee, while likely not taking any players from Bama or Dead Trees, forces them to use more resources within the state.  A natural byproduct of this is that each school has fewer resources to use out of state/region. The advantage could be minute, but I'll take anything.

Another thing too, with McGee's background and offensive style, he should do well in CUSA since that is pretty much where the conference has moved to. I can also tell you that UAB has not even been a blip on the radar as a threat to bama or Dead Trees in cruiten. I don't see that changing but UAB could def step it up and shut down the out of state schools from pillaging.

I'm excited for UAB. I hope this turns out well for both parties. Hey, why don't one of you homers start a McGee tracking thread. It would be interesting to see what unfolds.

Maybe Garrick has spoken with Mike Anderson and has received some advice on the job going into it that might lend itself to making a smooth transition and getting UAB competing in the CUSA. I would like to think Garrick will do an excellent job but I will only say it won't be out of incompetence if he doesn't succeed there. I'm not sure I'm buying that his past is what was holding other programs back from hiring him, but I guess it could have been a factor. UCONN (if I'm not mistaken) was his best shot at a BCS level job out of the gates, but few OC's get BCS jobs as their first HC gig.

He's taking this job because he feels ready to do it and doesn't want to wait on interview after interview until he finally lands a better offer. Perhaps out of respect for Arkansas he's jumping on this rather than waiting to see what else might pop up in lieu of coaches being hired away from other programs.

The truth is most of these mid-level conference gigs are pretty much mission impossible unless they've been previously built to some level of notoriety...he might have been better off in the Sun Belt, WAC, or MAC but it's hard to turn down a head coaching gig (when that's what you really want) when it's there in your lap not knowing what the future holds.
I totally yielded.

Was Garrick the lead recruiter of DGB?  I wonder how this affects our chances of getting him.

GM is impressive on every single count.  It'd be awesome to see him be wildly successful and back here calling the shots someday.

You got something to go with this or just the same ole?  I guess he's probably about ready to retire and isn't he from up there?  frick.  If anyone can replace them, Bobby can.  I would think he could get his pick of assistants but with all the new head coaching positions, they are probably hard to get a hold of.

Best of luck to McGee, great recruiting grounds down there and plenty of Blazer booty for everyone. 

I think he'll be able to pull in guys from the Florida panhandle, Georgia and of course the guys that don't go to Bama and Dead Trees.  And like another poster said, I wouldn't mind seeing McGee back in Fayetteville in the future.
