While at NDSU Magee also earned a Bachelor’s degree in physical education. After graduating from NDSU Magee was a student assistant at NDSU in 2006. From there he moved on to be an assistant coach at Apple Valley and helped the Eagles to a 42-2 record and a team state title.

In 2008 Magee took the head coaching position at Fargo North and coached three state champions, seven state finalists and twenty-one medal winners in four seasons. In 2009 and 2010 he qualified the Spartans for the North Dakota state competition. Magee is currently finishing up his Masters degree in curriculum and instruction with St. Catherine’s University.

“Magee will be a great asset to the Concordia program and we have been looking for a light weight coach to help mentor our smaller weight classes,” says Head Coach Clay Nagel. “We look forward to having him on board!”
