Latest UGA News: Favourite Candidate For Georgia Head Coach Job Revealed

Dell McGee is reportedly set to become the next head football coach at Georgia State, following recent speculations about potential candidates for the position. According to 247sports reporter Matt Zenitz, McGee has been formally offered the job and is expected to accept. The vacancy arose after Shawn Elliot’s decision to join South Carolina as their tight ends coach.

McGee’s ties to the Georgia football program date back to 2016 when he joined under head coach Kirby Smart. Initially serving as the running backs coach for three seasons, he later earned a promotion to assistant head coach.

In 2019, McGee assumed the role of run game coordinator, maintaining this position until his reported departure to Georgia State. Before his tenure in Athens, he gained coaching experience at Auburn, Georgia Southern, and various Georgia high school football programs.

A former college football player at Auburn from 1992-1995, McGee had brief stints in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals and the Detroit Lions. He also spent time in the Arena Football League and the XFL. McGee’s impact at Georgia extended beyond coaching, notably excelling as a recruiter. His prowess on the recruiting trail contributed to the Bulldogs’ success in attracting top-tier talent across different positions, showcasing his influence in the college football landscape.
