Petrino’s staff is complete!
One of the most important things when a new coach is brought in is who he will bring with him. The coaching staff he hires is a huge part of what kind of success that will hopefully follow. Bobby Petrino seems to have put together a great staff here at the University of Louisville. While we were all pretty attached to the former staff, this one seems to be solid as well.
Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks coach: Garrick McGee– UAB head coach. Read more about him here.
Running Backs: Kolby Smith– former Louisville running back. Was with Petrino at WKU. Read more about him here.
Wide Receivers: Lamar Thomas– played at Miami; was with Petrino at WKU. Good recruiter in Miami.
Offensive Line: Chris Klenakis- Iowa State’s offensive line coach. Read more about him here.
Tight Ends: This group will be coached by both the OL and WR coaches.
Defensive Coordinator: Todd Grantham- leaving position as Georgia DC to come to Louisville. Read more about him here.
Defensive Line: Clint Hurtt- came to Louisville with Charlie Strong. Will remain on staff under Petrino.
