Louisville Football has a couple of positions to fill for on-field coaching roles. One of those roles has been filled as Wesley McGriff was named Co-Defensive Coordinator.
McGriff joins UofL after a one year stint with Florida last season where he coached the secondary. Under McGriff’s tutelage, Florida’s seco defense only allowed 203.9 passing yards per game. That ranked 25th nationally last season.
Coach McGriff has a wealth of experience as a coach. He’s made numerous stops in the SEC as a position coach and a defensive coordinator. He was defensive coordinator at Mississippi from 2016-2017, served as defensive backs coach at Auburn in 2018 and 2019 as well. Prior to those stops, McGriff served as defensive backs coach in the NFL for the New Orleans Saints. He also had prior stops at Vanderbilt, Miami, Baylor, and uk.
McGriff will now use his immense experience and abilities to try to help right a defense that had some issues against the pass last season. His experience combined with Bryan Brown’s enthusiasm could help UofL’s defense improve next season.
