In his second season with the Wildcats, Magee joined the Arizona staff on Dec. 7, 2011 as Arizona's associate head coach, co-offensive coordinator and running backs coach. He's been a successful coordinator of spread-option running attacks for head coach Rich Rodriguez at a number of stops.

2012 was a banner year for the Wildcat offense. Running back Ka'Deem Carey led the nation in total rushing yards (1,929) and yards per game (148.38) while rewriting the Arizona record book. For his efforts, Carey was named first-team All-Pac-12 and a consensus All-American, UA's first on the offensive side of the ball.

UA lead the Pac-12 in total offense for four-straight weeks (weeks 6-9) and ranked as high as fourth nationally in weeks three, seven and nine. Arizona's offensive triple-threat attack featured a 3,000-yard passer (Matt Scott - 3,620 yards), a 1,500-yard rusher (Carey - 1,929 yards) and a 1,000-yard receiver (Austin Hill - 1,364 yards).

During the 2011 season, he served as assistant head coach and co-offensive coordinator at Pittsburgh. With more than 20 years in coaching, he has been on the sidelines for eight bowl games.

Magee coached for Rodriguez for three years at Michigan (2008-10) and for seven years at West Virginia (2001-07). He was associate head coach, offensive coordinator and running backs coach at Michigan, and coached running backs throughout his tenure in Morgantown while adding the coordinator post his final three seasons and assistant head coach his last year at West Virginia.

Magee was an All-American tight end at Southern University, earning first-team honors in 1983 and 1984. He led the Jaguars each of his four seasons (1981-84) and was MVP of the 1985 Freedom Bowl. He was a three-time All-Southwestern Athletic Conference selection. He was inducted into the Southern University Hall of Fame in 2000.

Following his playing tenure at Southern, he had a five-year stint in the National Football League with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1985-89).

He began his college coaching career at South Florida where he coached tight ends (1996), running backs (1999-00) and served as running game coordinator those final two years.

A native of New Orleans, Magee earned a bachelor's degree from South Florida in 1990. He and his wife, Rosie, have two daughters, Jade and Jasmine, and a son, Bryson.
