Ryan Magee '11 heads into his seventh season as an assistant coach with the Saint Michael's women's tennis squad in 2018-19, and he served as interim head coach between coaches in late 2015 and early 2016. During this stretch, Magee also previously headed the men's program for three seasons while assisting for two more.
Magee has worked under three different head coaches while aiding the women's program to a 45-44 mark over the past six years, which included three postseason berths, including a run to the 2012-13 Northeast-10 Conference Championship semifinals.
Saint Michael's fielded a nine-woman squad that counted only one student-athlete with more than one season of college experience in the fall of 2017. Two of the squad's four regionally-ranked NE10 opponents were among a difficult season-ending six-match run after the Purple Knights had reached .500 thanks to an early-season 4-2 stretch. The Purple Knights approached .500 for the first time in two seasons during the fall of 2016, standing 6-4 late in the season before losing four times in five days, including against three NE10 Championship qualifiers, two of which were regionally ranked. Half of the Purple and Gold's losses were to regionally-ranked foes while posting a 4-8 mark in 2015-16.
In 2014-15, the women finished the fall of 2014 with an 8-5 mark, as each loss was to a regionally-ranked opponent, including a narrow 5-4 loss against defending NE10 tournament champion Merrimack College. The Purple Knights qualified for the postseason for the 16th consecutive season. They also won at least eight league contests for the 15th straight year. During the 2013-14 school year, Saint Michael's knocked off regionally-ranked Southern New Hampshire University late in the regular season. The Purple Knights, who were ranked as high as eighth in the region during the school year, bowed out of the NE-10 Championship in the first round.
Saint Michael's also topped out at No. 8 in the East Region in 2012-13, going 12-5 overall and 10-2 in the NE10 while drawing the No. 3 seed for the league tournament. The Purple Knights lost to eventual postseason champion Stonehill College in the semifinals.
As head coach of the men's program, Magee earned his first victory on April 7, 2016, with the Purple Knights downing American International College, 7-2.
A three-year tennis player during his undergraduate days at the College, Magee earned 18 victories between singles and doubles play. He graduated in 2011 with degrees in business administration and information systems.
