McGee leaves Carver HS for Auburn football administrative post

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Carver football coach Dell McGee said on Thursday he is leaving the high school coaching ranks to take an administrative job with the Auburn University football program.

The Auburn grad led the Carver program for eight seasons, going 88-19 with seven straight region titles, four trips to the GHSA state semifinals, and the Class AAA state title in 2007. The Tigers have a 44-game region winning streak, dating back to 2006.

McGee played his college ball at Auburn, lettering as a defensive back from 1992-95. He played one season in the NFL, for the Arizona Cardinals.

He is one of three high school coaches hired by new Auburn coach Gus Malzahn over the past week to fill administrative roles. The others are Chip Lindsey of Spain Park and Brent Dearmon of B.C. Rain.

McGee says he'll begin his new duties on Monday.
