Garrick McGee - Alabama-Birmingham Head
Coach


Good Fit - McGee spent four seasons at Arkansas as an
assistant coach, including the last two as the offensive coordinator.
Hiring McGee would make for a smooth transition with a team that has
players in place to make a run at the SEC Championship. Same offense, same
terminology, same philosphy.


Bad Fit - McGee just left for Alabama-Birmingham and
has hired new coaches, essentially too many coaches and not enough jobs.
He owned up to a checkered past when he took the UAB job, but Arkansas may
be looking for a cleaner slate with the next hire.
