Michigan names Sean Magee Director of Player Personnel

Sean Magee joins the Michigan football program after spending the previous five seasons at Navy.

The Michigan football program has its replacement for Tony Tuioti after announcing his replacement on Tuesday.

The university announced that Sean Magee will assume the role of Director of Player Personnel for the football program, a position he held for previous five years for the U.S. Naval Academy where he was heavily involved in the recruiting process. Magee's military background was a major selling point for U-M head coach Jim Harbaugh.

“Sean brings a strong recruiting history and an experienced personnel background to the University of Michigan,” said Harbaugh in a statement. “We are excited to have his military experience, leadership skills and organizational talents help make our program great. Throughout the interview process, I felt that Sean answered my questions about how to improve our program before I could even ask them. Michigan football looks forward to having Sean, Sarah and their children, Miles, Stella, Brooks and Colt join our university family.”

A graduate of the Naval Academy, Magee was a letterman offensive lineman for the Midshipmen. After his graduation in 2004, Magee was stationed in Japan where he served in the Arabian Gulf during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

“I am unbelievably excited to join the University of Michigan family,” said Magee in a statement. “The opportunity to work with such a phenomenal staff, led by Coach Harbaugh, at one of the world’s premier institutions, is certainly a responsibility that I do not take lightly. I look forward to doing everything I can to help Michigan football shape a national championship roster.”
