BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - Garrick McGee is leaving UAB after two seasons to join Bobby Petrino's staff at Louisville, according to a report.

Two sources have told AL.com McGee informed his UAB staff he is leaving for Lousiville.

UAB has called a team meeting for 3 p.m., a source told AL.com.

Multiple calls to UAB athletics director Brian Mackin have not been returned.

ESPN first reported McGee was leaving for Louisville via Twitter citing a source.

McGee would be quitting UAB after two seasons as its head coach to go to Louisville to be the Cardinals' offensive coordinator.

McGee's contract was five years. His buyout, at this point, would be a year's .

McGee coached under Petrino at Arkansas for four seasons before coming to UAB in December 2011.

McGee guided the Blazers to a 5-19 overall record, and despite a 2-10 finishing last season, which included some close losses. He was given another season to turn around the Blazers' football program.

McGee would be leaving UAB at a critical time in the recruiting process. January is typically the month college football teams finish collecting verbal commitments in advance of national signing day, which is Feb. 5 this year.

Petrino was introduced as Louisville's head coach on Thursday morning.
