Garrick McGee, offensive coordinator at the University of Arkansas the past two seasons and a finalist for the 2011 Broyles Award that is presented to the nation's top assistant coach, has been named head football coach at UAB, Blazers' Director of Athletics Brian Mackin announced Sunday.

McGee becomes the fourth head coach in UAB history and replaces Neil Callaway who resigned his position Nov. 27.

McGee, a former Oklahoma quarterback, has been a leading force behind Arkansas becoming one of the country's most prolific offenses in recent years. In his first season as the offensive coordinator in 2010, the Razorbacks earned the school's first BCS appearance in program history as the season culminated at the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.
