About Herb Magee...

Naismith Hall of Fame speech 

Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Herb Magee has been the face of the university’s men’s basketball program for 61 years, first as a student-athlete and then as a coach.

Dubbed “The Shot Doctor”, Magee has worked with numerous NBA players on the art of the jump shot, including 2006 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Charles Barkley, the Denver Nuggets’ Jameer Nelson, and the Boston Celtics’ Evan Turner. He has also produced a pair of instruction DVDs: “Nothing But Net” and “Nothing But Drills”.

As he goes into his 53rd season as the Jefferson Rams’ head coach (Philadelphia Univ merged with Jefferson University in July 2017), Magee has amassed 1,096 career victories—which ranks first in NCAA Division II men’s basketball and second across all three divisions—and led his teams to 30 NCAA Tournament appearances.

Magee is just one of three coaches in NCAA men’s basketball history to record 1,000 career victories, accomplishing the feat on Feb. 7, 2015 with an 80-60 victory over Post University.  His coaching has produced 12 All-Americans, 46 1,000-point scorers and three 2,000-point scorers.

A member of numerous Halls of Fame, Magee is also enshrined in the West Catholic High School Hall of Fame, Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame (1979), Philadelphia University Athletics Hall of Fame (1984), Philadelphia Area Small College Basketball Hall of Fame (2002) and the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame (2008).

In 2005, Magee was selected as a “Guardian of the Game” by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) under its Education core value and was honored at the NCAA Division I Final Four. Two years later, Magee was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Philadelphia Sports Congress. The Philadelphia Sports Writers Association tabbed Magee as its “Living Legend” in 2012.

In 1976, Magee earned the NABC Division II Co-Coach of the Year Award along with Puget Sound’s Don Zech. He has also been recognized as the NABC Division II East District Coach of the Year (1971, ’73, ’89, ’93), Kodak District Coach of the Year (1993), Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Coach of the Year (2008, ’10), New York Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year (1993, ’94, ’04), and Mideast Collegiate Conference Co-Coach of the Year (twice). In 2016, he received the Joe Lapchick Character Award.

Not only is Magee a tremendous coach, he is also one of the best players to wear a Rams’ uniform. As a guard for then-Philadelphia Textile from 1959 to 1963, Magee poured in 2,235 and averaged a school record 29.1 points per game in the 1961-62 season. Magee—an All-American in 1962 and 1963—led the Rams to a 75-17 record and to the 1963 NCAA Tournament quarterfinals.

After Magee graduated from Textile in 1963 with a marketing degree, he was taken by the Boston Celtics with the 62nd pick of that summer’s NBA Entry Draft. Magee chose not to join the Celtics and went back to Textile to serve as an assistant coach under his mentor Walter “Bucky” Harris—a position he held until taking over the program in 1967.
