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.
