Drew McGee joined the Georgia Tech golf program as assistant coach in July of 2016 after a two-year stint as assistant coach at the University of New Mexico.
McGee, 28, assists head coach Bruce Heppler in the areas of operations, scheduling, recruiting, academics and fund-raising.
“We’re excited for Drew to be part of our program,” said Heppler. “Drew was involved in every aspect of the New Mexico program and was successful in their recruiting efforts. He came highly recommended and is highly-regarded by many of the coaches on the West Coast.”
During his two years at New Mexico, McGee helped guide the Lobos to three tournament victories, two NCAA regional tournament appearances and a second-place finish in the Mountain West Conference Championship in 2016. Four Lobos won individual tournament titles, while five members of the team made the all-MWC team, and one was named Mountain West Player of the Year. McGee also served as co-director of the Lobo Junior Golf Camps.
“I am very excited to be with Coach Heppler and the Georgia Tech golf program,” said McGee. “I am also grateful for my time at New Mexico and the chance to work with Coach (Glen) Millican. I believe that my experience there has prepared me well for this tremendous opportunity. Coach Heppler has created a tradition of success both on the course and in the classroom, and I look forward to working with him and the players to build on that success. Georgia Tech is definitely a special place and I am thankful to be here.”
Prior to accepting an assistant’s position at New Mexico, McGee was head coach of the men’s and women’s teams at NAIA Northwood College in Cedar Hill, Texas, for the spring of 2014. Northwood’s teams broke two scoring records under McGee during his tenure, and the women’s team finished 10th in the 2014 NAIA Championships in Lincoln, Neb. That spring, he received the NAIA’s Champion of Character Award.
McGee began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant in 2013 at McNeese State.
McGee is a 2012 graduate of Baylor University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and was a three-year letter winner for coach Greg Priest. McGee was a member of the Big XII Commissioner’s honor roll.
He was a four-year letterwinner for head coaches Ronnie Jones and Jeff Williamson at Graham (Texas) High School. McGee led the Steers to back-to-back state runner-up finishes in 2005 and 2006 before helping Graham strike gold with a state championship in 2008. McGee was a first-team all-district, all-region and all-state performer his senior year. His sister Anna played volleyball at Texas Women’s University.
