McBride coached the UK inside linebackers the last two seasons. He came to UK from the University of Utah, where he was head coach from 1990-2002. He guided the Utes to an 88-62 record, six bowl appearances, and won a share of two conference championships. His recruiting also laid the groundwork for the current undefeated Utah squad.

"Ron is one of the all-time great coaches and we will miss him very much," Brooks said. "I'm happy for him that he will get a chance to resurrect the Weber State program like he did at Utah."
