Max Magee joined the CIA staff in 2018 as the Steels basketball coach. He is a believer of the defense-first approach to the sport, incorporating intelligent offensive concepts that best serve each player’s strengths. His goal with the Steels is to develop a strong culture of doing things the right way and to see players grow and improve—both individually and as a team—over the course of the season.
Coach Magee came to the CIA after serving as the assistant varsity basketball coach for the highly acclaimed program at Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, NY for several years. Magee helped direct Stepinac to the New York State Class AA league, city, state, and federation titles during the 2017–18 school year, amassing a 27-5 record. Stepinac’s basketball team was ranked #1 in the state and #11 in the nation in post-season polls.
Magee also spent four years as an assistant football coach at Archbishop Stepinac. The Westchester County native is a graduate of Harrison High School. He holds an associate degree in history from American Public University and is pursuing his bachelor’s degree in sports management from the same institution.
When not coaching, Magee works with teens at the Red Hook Community Center in Red Hook, NY and is the website manager for the Oregon State University athletics site. The resident of Rhinebeck, NY enjoys watching all kinds of sports and is a fan of rock music.
