Calvin Magee was a well-known and accomplished professional football player before retiring from the gridiron. Calvin’s field techniques garnered him many admirers and he made a transition to coaching. Sadly, the Former NFL Tight End and JSU coach has passed away.

According to the school, Calvin Magee, a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end and current coach, passed on Friday. He was just 59-years-old. Rich Rodriguez, the JSU Gamecocks’ quarterback, couldn’t hold back his emotions after hearing the devastating news.

“Our hearts are broken with the loss of our beloved friend Calvin Magee. Calvin was a great husband, great father, and grandfather, great coach, great friend and great man.”

“He impacted my life and the lives of so many others in such a positive way. Our thoughts and prayers are with his beautiful family – wife Rose, daughters Jade and Jasmine, son Bryson, his grandchildren, and all his friends and relatives. Our world is less, but heaven got better.”

“I miss him dearly already. I love you, my brother.”

Magee, who began his coaching career in the early 1990s at Tampa Catholic High School in Florida, joined Rodriguez’s team in December. He coached at South Florida, West Virginia, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Arizona, New Mexico, and Ole Miss in his more than two decades of expertise.

Our thoughts go out to everyone involved in this sad situation. RIP.
