LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Garrick McGee is staying at Louisville as offensive coordinator.

McGee had been mentioned for several openings including offensive coordinator at Oklahoma, but turned down his alma mater and Sooners coach Bob Stoops to remain on Bobby Petrino’s staff.

The Oklahoma native said in a statement Thursday that "OU has a special place in my heart, but Petrino and the University of Louisville are very special to me."

The Cardinals went 9-4 in McGee’s first season as coordinator/quarterbacks coach after two years as UAB’s head coach. Injuries caused Louisville to use three quarterbacks last season but the Cardinals earned a Belk Bowl invitation before losing 37-14 to Georgia.

Added Petrino, "I am excited that (McGee) is committed to being a part of what we are building at the University of Louisville."
