Bulldogs Dell McGee is GSU Panthers New Head Coach

The Dawgs are losing a key part of their offensive coaching crew, but the Panthers are getting a new head play-caller with a championship resume.

The Georgia State University Panthers have confirmed that Dell McGee is the new head coach of their football program. He will be the fourth head coach GSU has had in its 14-year college football history. He replaces Shawn Elliott, who resigned the head coach position earlier this month to become assistant coach at South Carolina, citing family reasons.

McGee has 22 total years of coaching experience, including the three years at UGA he spent winning back-to-back national college football titles with the Georgia Bulldogs under head coach Kirby Smart. McGee was UGA’s run game coordinator and running backs coach. He has experience as a player for NFL and XFL football teams, and as a coach, who worked with high schools and colleges (besides UGA, he also was an analyst at Auburn, a running backs coach, and assistant head coach, and interim head coach at Georgia Southern.

The departure of McGee from UGA will set off a national search for his replacement.

McGee will get a formal introduction at a press conference scheduled for Monday morning at 10 AM in the University Club at Center Park Stadium.
