Herb Magee

Herb Magee (born June 20, 1941), commonly referred to as the Shot Doctor, is a Division II men's college basketball coach at his alma mater, Philadelphia University, known as Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science until 1999. He is entering his 48th year as head coach, and his 56th year as either a player or coach at the school. In 2015, he achieved his 1,000th win as a head coach, becoming one of only four college coaches to achieve that milestone. On August 12, 2011, Magee became a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame's Class of 2011.



Magee, an Irish American[1] played his high school basketball at Philadelphia's famed West Catholic High, where his teammates included former Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach Jim Lynam and former St. Joseph's coach Jim Boyle.

As a five-foot-ten inch, 150-pound player for the Philadelphia Rams, he scored 2,235 points (before the introduction of the 3-point shot), leading his team to 75 victories. Magee was a two-time All-American and drafted by the Boston Celtics (the 62nd pick of the 1963 NBA draft). However, he broke his fingers before training camp, and opted instead to return to his alma mater as an assistant coach under Buckey Harris. When Harris retired in 1967, Magee became head coach at the age of 25. He has spent his entire adult life at the East Falls school as either a player, assistant coach or head coach.


His exploits as a coach have not gone unnoticed, as his list of awards and achievements can attest. The Kodak District Coach of the Year in 1993, Magee was also tabbed New York Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year that season and again in 1994. In addition, he has been honored as regional Coach of the Year four times, national Coach of the Year twice, and Co-Coach of the Year in the Mideast Collegiate Conference twice. He was also inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame in 1979. He led the Rams to the College Division National Championship in 1970.

Magee received a Bachelor of Science in marketing from Philadelphia University in 1963 and a Master's in Education from St. Joseph's University in 1969.
