OXFORD, Miss. (Ole Miss Athletics/WTVA) - Ole Miss head football coach Matt Luke continues to add valued experience to his staff, announcing the hire of Calvin Magee as tight ends coach on Sunday.

Magee, a 23-year coaching veteran and former NFL tight end, joins the Rebel program after spending the last 14 years as an offensive coordinator at the collegiate level.

"It is exciting to add an assistant with Coach Magee's impressive resume to our staff," Luke said. "His experience as an NFL tight end and his understanding of what Coach (Rich) Rodriguez wants to do offensively, make him a perfect fit. I love the chemistry and continuity we are developing on our staff, and we are excited to get to work."

Magee has coached 12 of his previous 14 seasons as the offensive coordinator on Rodriguez's staff, and he has managed the spread option offense which Rodriguez has been widely credited for innovating. He spent six years at the University of Arizona as co-offensive coordinator, associate head coach, tight ends coach and running backs coach. He also served as offensive coordinator and running backs coach at Pittsburgh, Michigan, West Virginia and most recently New Mexico.

While at Arizona, the Wildcats established the school's single-game records for team scoring, total offense and rushing offense. In addition, Arizona produced three of its 10 highest single-game rushing performances and ranked third nationally in rushing in 2017 at 309.3 yards per game.

Magee served as assistant head coach and co-offensive coordinator at Pittsburgh in 2011 after coaching under Rodriguez for three years at Michigan (2008-10) and 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 WVU.

He began his college coaching career at South Florida where he coached tight ends (1996), running backs (1999-2000) and served as running game coordinator the final two years.

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. 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).

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