Wayne McGinn was named CSU-Pueblo offensive coordinator January 2.
McGinn had been the head football coach at Adams
State since 2000, guiding the Grizzlies to a 35-51 record in that
time. In 2004, McGinn led the Grizzlies to a 7-4 record, its best
mark in 15 years. During that 2004 season, McGinn saw three players
earn All-America honors while 12 team members earned All-Rocky
Mountain Athletic Conference accolades. From 2004-06, Adams State
posted winning records under McGinn's leadership.
Before taking on the job at Adams State, the
Westminster, Colo., native had been serving as the defensive
coordinator and top assistant coach at arch-rival Western State for
five years. He began his tenure at WSC in 1987 and in 1996 led the
Mountaineers to a 6-5 (6-2 RMAC) record and a RMAC second place
finish while Head Coach Carl "Duke" Iverson was on sabbatical. In
1997, Western State finished ninth in the Division II national
poll. That year, WSC won the RMAC title and his defense led the
conference in seven categories.
During his 13 total years at WSC, the Mountaineers
posted a 75-53 record, won at least a share of six RMAC titles and
made four appearances in the national playoffs.
McGinn was a student-assistant coach at ASC in 1981
while finishing his bachelor's degree. He then took a coaching job
at Loveland High School, where he was from 1982-84. Helping to lead
the Indians to the 1982 state title, he then moved on to be a
graduate assistant coach at Texas Christian University where he
earned his master's degree in 1986. The 1977 graduate of
Westminster High School also holds a master's degree from ASC.
McGinn and his wife Linda, whom he met while in Loveland, have
two children; daughter Caitlin and son Zack.
