Darrin Hinshaw will serve as UAB’s offensive coordinator this season. Hinshaw was hired as an analyst at UAB earlier this year. He was elevated after Bryant Vincent took over as the interim head coach.

Hinshaw was a four-year starter at quarterback for UCF, leaving as the career leader at the time in every major passing category. He played for two seasons in the Arena Football League before beginning his coaching career.

He was the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Kentucky from 2016-20. He was also the co-offensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee from 2001-05 and the offensive coordinator at Georgia Southern in 2006. Hinshaw also had assistant coaching stops at Tennessee and Cincinnati.

At Kentucky, Hinshaw coached Lynn Bowden Jr., who moved from wide receiver to quarterback and earned All-SEC honors. Last season, Hinshaw served as an analyst under Gus Malzahn at UCF.

Hinshaw replaces Vincent as the offensive coordinator. Vincent said during the Conference USA Media Day that he will still call the plays during games.
