UAB football coach Garrick McGee has stepped down, and a person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that he has agreed to become Bobby Petrino's offensive coordinator at Louisville.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because Louisville had not announced the hiring.

McGee was 5-19 in two seasons Blazers, going 2-10 this past season. He worked with Petrino at Arkansas from 2008-2011, the last two seasons as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Petrino left Western Kentucky on Thursday to return to Louisville.
