Fayetteville (NWAOnline.com) - Arkansas offensive coordinator Garrick McGee has interviewed for the head coaching vacancy at Tulsa University, Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino confirmed Wednesday.
McGee is finishing his first season as the Razorbacks offensive coordinator and has worked as the team's quarterbacks coach for the last three years. Arkansas averaged 482.5 yards per game this year, good enough for eighth nationally.
McGee is a Tulsa native, where his father was the longtime head football coach at Booker T. Washington High School. He has served as Arkansas' lead recruiter in the city since 2008.
Tulsa isn't the only school that has shown interest in McGee this off-season. Connecticut interviewed McGee for its head coaching position over the weekend. Reports from there, however, indicate former Miami offensive coordinator Mark Whipple is the leading candidate for that position.
McGee is thought to be one of several candidates for the position at Tulsa. Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris and Tulsa running backs coach Bill Blankenship are also said to have interviewed.
Former Tulsa and Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe, once thought a candidate for the position, will not be interviewed, according to a report in this morning's Tulsa World.
