    New OC offer

    First Post Banner
    Per football scoop, Davie has offered the OC job to former associate head coach and co-offensive coordinator from AZ Calvin Magee. The hire of Magee is reported to be coming in the next few days. Don't know too much about him other than he helped spear head AZ's QB into having an incredible season last year.

    Blane Morgan sounds better to me, but McGee does have the NFL pedigree.

    That would be a good hire. Basically Rich Rod's right hand man.

    Don't know much about him, but like what I saw from the production UoA got out of their running QB last year. Also being around during Rich Rod's spread option attacks at WVU has to stand for something. Pedigree looks promising at first glance.

    Yeah, maybe he can make Sheriron Jones look just a little like Kahlil Tate. I'd take that.

    Magee was with RichRod for quite a while.

    If hired this would be a big change of philosophy on offense, one that could work wonders. UNM has the WR’s and RB’s to run this offense. Getting the correct QB is the key.

    I noticed that his primary recruiting areas are "Louisiana and Eastern Arizona JUCO's". I do not recall UNM previously having a coach that said Louisiana was his primary recruiting area...

    Football Scoop now reporting Magee as OC is now a done deal with the announcement coming tomorrow.

    Nice. I think Davie improved his staff in the end. Along with expanding it by adding the tenth coach.

    His twitter account says that Arizona had 41 rushing TD's this season.

    Great News! This is Davie's program and baby. He knows what needs to be done to continue to grow and flourish in this atmosphere. He is bringing in more exciting recruits and now an established OC. I personally needed to see a change. Curious who will elevate as the starting QB. Go Lobos!

    Curious as to why you think it's a change in philosophy. It actually seems like the same philosophy as when we were most successful -- running QB with heavy team emphasis on a rushing attack.

    Everything is based on QB talent. Three years ago, AZ pretty much killed us through the air, even though they were a running team. Tate just hadn’t made the transition yet.

    It will be fun & interesting to see what O is installed this spring. Will it still have triple,option, one back or two, spread?

    Football: Calvin Magee named offensive coordinator

    By Cameron Goeldner  Published 10 hours ago

    "Magee’s hiring is expected to be made official in the coming days."

    "Under Magee’s leadership, the Wildcats ran a spread-option attack, which mainly differs from a triple option offense (which the Lobos have run under Davie) in the lack of a pitch man, leaving two players in the back field instead of the three that previous New Mexico teams usually had."

    "In six years at Arizona, Magee’s offense set single game records for team scoring, total offense and rushing offense."

    I've been an Arizona season ticket holder for about 9 years now, so I've seen all of Magee's work as OC here in Tucson. I'll post more thoughts later once it becomes official.

    Two completely different offenses.

    UNM ran a variation of the triple option Pistol Offense the last 6 years.

    RichRod/Magee ran a Spread-based Offense that emphasized the run game. The RichRod offense passes the ball much more often than UNM has under Davie and is not a triple-option Offense.

    Says he also coached RBs and TEs. Will he pick up one of those in addition to his OC duties?
