The school announced news of Magee’s death on Friday. No funeral details have been announced.

“Our hearts are broken with the loss of our beloved friend Calvin Magee,” Jacksonville State head coach Rich Rodriguez said in a statement. “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 world is less, but heaven got better. I miss him dearly already. I love you my brother.”

Magee, who was hired by the school in December, also held titles of offensive coordinator and tight ends coach. He spent 25 of the previous 26 seasons at numerous FBS spots and served as offensive coordinator at five of them: West Virginia, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Arizona and New Mexico.

We send our condolences to his family, friends and the countless players he impacted in his more than three decades coaching the game.”
