In addition to hiring former Texas Tech defensive coordinator David Gibbs to a yet-to-be-announced role, Missouri promoted offensive analyst Garrick McGee to an assistant coaching position on Tuesday.
The school announced the McGee promotion in a release.
McGee joined the Mizzou staff prior to the 2018 season as senior offensive analyst. In that role, McGee aided Mizzou’s potent offensive attack with advance scouting of opposing defenses, where he helped break down video and provided initial direction for the coaches to design game plans and strategies. His work helped the Tiger offense develop into one of the nation’s top units, as Mizzou finished the 2018 ranked 13th nationally (third in the SEC) in total offense (481.8 yards per game) and 18th nationally (third in the SEC) in scoring (36.6 points per game).
McGee’s contract and official position will be released “pending completion of the human resources process,” the release says.
McGee was the interim tight ends coach during the bowl season, following the departure of former tight ends coach Joe Jon Finley. Finley left for Texas A&M after the regular-season finale against Arkansas.
According to Gabe DeArmond of PowerMizzou.com, McGee’s final position will either be tight ends or receivers:
Garrick McGee now a full time assistant as has been expected. Will either stay with tight ends or take over receivers with AJ Ofodile moving to tight ends https://t.co/Eu7TpYd3QI— Gabe DeArmond (@GabeDeArmond) January 17, 2019
