Here is the official announcement from UofL Football regarding the hiring of new coach Lonnie Galloway and the additional responsibilities of Nick Petrino & Coach Klenakis.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Lonnie Galloway, considered one of the nation’s top developer of wide receiver talent and one of the top recruiters, has been named co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at the University of Louisville, head coach Bobby Petrino announced Monday.
Galloway joins the Cardinals from West Virginia, where he served as the associate head coach and wide receivers coach for three seasons.
“I am pleased to announce the hiring of Lonnie Galloway to our staff, and a well-deserved promotion for Coach Klenakis,” Petrino said. “Coach Galloway has been a part of programs with explosive, record-setting offenses and he has impressed me with his passion for the players he has coached. He’s a proven recruiter who has established relationships in key areas that will be an advantage for our program. Coach Klenakis has consistently brought a great energy to our program. He has been extremely dedicated and he did a tremendous job with our young offensive line last season. The perspective of both coaches blend well and we will continue our philosophy of being aggressive and attacking defenses in a number of ways.”
“It’s an honor and privilege to be promoted to co-coordinator at the University of Louisville,” Klenakis said. “I’m appreciative that Coach Petrino believes in my abilities as a coach, and spending seven years on his staff, I’m grateful for what he has meant to my career. I look forward to working with the offensive staff in helping our offense continue to work toward our program’s increasing goals.”
