Report: Lonnie Galloway hired as Louisville offensive coordinator

Monday March 14th, 2016

West Virginia receivers coach Lonnie Galloway is expected to become new Louisville offensive coordinator under coach Bobby Petrino, according to Mike Casazza of the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

Former Cardinals offensive coordinator Garrick McGee accepted the same position on Lovie Smith's staff at Illinois.

Last month, Galloway signed a contract extension that kept him in Morgantown through 2017 before accepting a pay raise with Louisville. Galloway was earning $375,000 a year in his most recent contract, according to Casazza. McGee was earning $850,000 at Louisville last year. 

Galloway has also coached at Wake Forest, Appalachian State and East Carolina in addition to his two stints with West Virginia.
